You read that much right, but it sounds like you skipped step 3

  1. Torque the head bolts to 24 ft/lb to settle and pre-compress the gasket
  2. Loosen and retorque to 14 ft/lb
  3. mark each bolt and tighten each one 90 degrees farther, and then another 90 degrees more, for a total of 180 degrees each

RTFM :thumbsup:

If you haven't put more than a few minutes time on it, you might be able to go ahead with taking the bolts another 180 Degrees without taking the head off.
