Thanks for the question. Heres your torque specs:

  • Step 1: Tighten bolts 1-10, 20 N·m (15 ft. lbs.).
  • Step 2: Tighten bolts 1-10, 47 N·m (35 ft. lbs.). Tighten bolts 11-14, 25 N·m (18 ft. lbs.).
  • Step 3: Tighten bolts 1-10, 90 degrees. Tighten bolts 11-14, 30 N·m (22 ft. lbs.).
  • NOTE: The cylinder head bolts are tightened using a torque plus angle procedure. The bolts must be examined BEFORE reuse. If the threads are necked down (2) the bolts should be replaced.

    Necking can be checked by holding a straight edge against the threads. If all the threads do not contact the scale, the bolt should be replaced.

    bolts 1-10 are the large bolts and 11-14 are the smaller bolts.
