a retorque every now and then wont hurt, just be sure to not over torque...you can bend the flange and cause leaks...that is what I feel is one of the biggest issues with people and headders....some hammer fisted hack smoking the hell out of the bolts.

You can get bolts with lock wire holes and lock wire them, there are locking tab wahsers now...

After a break in period of your headers (1000 miles) it's a good idea to re torque.. I have never heard of having to do it more then once after the install..
