It's always best to put bolts at the specified torque...

in the absence of a torque wrench, you'd probably be ok with most of the bolts removed for an oil change, although i'd be a little worried about the exhaust header bolts (if you needed to pull those)...and don't forget, most of the parts are aluminum, and will strip somewhat easily, so don't overtighten!
