do composite head gaskets require more or less torque than tin gaskets?

The torque is done to stretch the bolts for good clamp/fixture. As far as I recall the torque is the same on all the rv8's with the possible exception of cross-bolted engines. They have tty stretch bolts which can't be used twice.
