IMO once the studs are torqued properly, they should not loosen up and should not need to be retorqued unless something is wrong.

My guess is that you are experiencing the "magnesium case pulled stud" syndrome. drive it for a while and check them again. If they loosen up again you need to rebuild the engine.
