We improve previous results relating R-torsion, for an acyclic representation of the fundamental group, with a special value of the torsion zeta function of an analytic Anosov flow on a 3-manifold. By using the new techniques of Rugh and Fried we get rid of the unpleasent assumptions about the regularity of the invariant foliations.
