Take no offense here, but the only critical stretch bolts on a car are the cylinderhead bolts and big end cap bolts on the con rods and maybe some bolts on the timing gear system. The aluminum bolts on the N52 are used only on the engine block for things that bolt to it, to get a level of precision of bolt torque you are seeking with a digital torque wrench plus angle is far overkill IMO.

The only digital click-type torque wrench I have is a 1/2" drive, which I use for wheel bolts. I'm sure after 30-some plus years, it's not in calibration.
