I seldom torque bolts, especially steel into aluminum. Torquing steel nuts on steel studs is ok. Head nuts, bearing caps, flywheel, suspension, and the like is good. This is just my take after 50+ years of working on Alfa's. Tighten evenly and snug. If there is a gasket present a good firm tightening should be sufficient. Use an alternating pattern like you do on lug nuts and draw down in stages.
