hi, found same info twice, this should do the trick, torque to specs then additional 90 degrees turn on all bolts

 

Object Number: 2483  Size: SH

Notice: Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.

Important: Use J 36660-A in order to tighten all the cylinder head bolts an additional 90 degrees in sequence.

  • Use the following sequence in order to tighten the cylinder head bolts:

    Tighten

    1. Tighten bolt 1 to 63 N·m (46 lb ft).
    2. Tighten bolt 2 to 58 N·m (43 lb ft).
    3. Tighten bolt 3 to 58 N·m (43 lb ft).
    4. Tighten bolt 4 to 63 N·m (46 lb ft).
    5. Tighten bolt 5 to 63 N·m (46 lb ft).
    6. Tighten bolt 6 to 58 N·m (43 lb ft).
    7. Tighten bolt 7 to 58 N·m (43 lb ft).
    8. Tighten bolt 8 to 63 N·m (46 lb ft).
    9. Tighten bolt 9 to 63 N·m (46 lb ft).
    10. Tighten bolt 10 (stud bolt) to 58 N·m (43 lb ft).
    11. Then tighten all bolts an additional 90 degrees
