Hi Here is the procedure for the lower intake gasket.
Intake Manifold Replacement (Lower) Removal Procedure
J 23600-B Torque Angle Meter
Important: Retain the washers in the same orientation on the center bolts.
Important: Keep the pushrods in order. The pushrods must be installed in the original position.
Important: All gasket-mating surfaces need to be free of oil, and foreign material. Use GM P/N 12346139 (Canadian P/N 10953463) or equivalent to clean surfaces.
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.
Tighten Tighten the bolts to 10 N·m (89 lb in) +30 degrees.
Important: All lower intake manifold bolts need to be cleaned and free of any foreign material, only new bolts are to be used.
Important: Manufacturer recommends the center bolts be fully torqued before the diagonal bolts to assure proper seal ability.
