Yea leave it.
I'd suggest that you change that signature. Some might find it unfunny... but then I worry what you might change it to.

70 doesn't seem much for head bolts.

The last two engines I rebuilt had bolts that you torque to 70 nM. When done, then turn each bolt 90 degrees. Then do them again 90 degrees. I swear, if you do this you will think the bolts are going to break off they are so tight.

I don't think it would be a problem to leave them as they are.

Maybe you should recheck the specs on these again.
