Unhappy 22RE Head Bolt Torque Mistake

I torqued a head on a 22re toyota motor to 40in/lbs before discovering the cam was not properly lined up. I removed the head bolts and rocker arm assembly alingned the cam and reinstalled the bolts torquing to 58 ft/lbs. Will that be a problem with the gasket not properly seating?

Hard to say what the outcome will be. If it was my rig, I wouldn't risk re-using the head gasket.

You're using a genuine Toyota head gasket, right?
