Access to the bolts is a big part of torquing properly. And the answer to that is tools, tools and more tools.
Crows feet, boxed end extensions, the proper length drive extensions.. even a 1" can make life easier. And of course a full array of short, medium and deep sockets . Theres also the fast becomeing my favorite and somewhat new addition to my collection, the impact swivel sockets. Not as flexible as a wobble joint but much better in my opinion.
PSA when useing any tool/ adapter that offsets the drive centerline of your torque wrench. "torque wrench drive not directly over bolt head" your torque value will change. As RC said this takes math or if yoh have access to it I use Fastenals torque calculator and double check with math.
For example I used a 2 inch boxed end extension on my outside cam cap bolts. The value went from 106 inch pounds to 91 due to useing it in a inline away manner with my 12" long torque wrench.
