And yes I have built very Hi Po motors for a Comp eliminator car that turned over 11,000 rpm, & you can bet your life every nut and bolt was torqued EXACTLY to spec... even ones that you don't think matter (valve covers)
But for a quick oil change I have never torqued it, same goes for the tires on my Cobalt... however on the Vette which sees a lot of time on the 1/4 mile I DO torque the wheels when i swap to DR from street tires...
