Be sure to re-torque the cylinder head as if high temperature soaked the head area the engine bolts may have permanently elongated due to the extreme temp. Otherwise, just keep an eye on the engine - including 'profiling' the engine with an infra-red thermometer (record temps vs. various areas of the engine) to be able to 'see' if/where thermal problems are developing (good idea for any engine).
