Can the stock head bolts be re-used?

I find this thread to be hilarious.

It's 15.5mm 17point. I have absolute authority on this.

I've said 12mm all along, I don't know what you're talking about. Where are my pills?

Aren't they stretch bolts that shouldn't be re-used? Or can they be?
Anyone know?

Do not re-use head bolts. Replace them with new bolts or buy a set of ARP studs.

Braineack and I have both reused stock head bolts on 1.6 motors. I see no reason why you could not reuse them. I would still recommend changing to ARP studs if you are doing an engine build.

So just because Curly demanded a recount here is another video to show the correct size.

Ok, last question:

If I separate the block and head, will it fit in the back of a Honda Civic?

Thanks
