You might as well do a compression test. In the unlikely event that there is trouble with the short block like broken rings you would find out.

It's too bad you couldn't have seen the engine...

Millions of these engines were built and installed into cars and trucks that didn't develop leaks of air for decades, with no retorquing of fasteners.
