Heads lifting under boost

Hello , im referring to a prev post, Mr Fairman made a good comment when noticed a small amount of oil near where I was installing air plugs and said that this can be from head lifting under boost...I didn't follow it up at the time but obviously it cant be a good thing..

Q: I don't want to stop boosting, so what do I do, do I retorque?? if so how much around 30?
If so can someone send me a link on howto? cos im not sure which nuts I should tighten, (serious),

If other questions cant be helped with pls I need a link or pic showing exactly the nuts that hold the head down so I can at least take photos of them and post here for opinion.

OR do I drop the spring on WG to a softer one and do nothing with the nuts?


BTW: this is not a joke thread I do want to know how to do this thx
