Hi,

This is for the 2.5 v6, correct?

I had also asked for the intake manifold sequence and specs as well.

Also, I am a little confused. In the head bolt sequence, Stage 1,2,3 are the same, so how do you adjust to 18ftlbs when it is already at 18ftlbs?

I share your confusion so here is the procedure where it becomes clear as mud

 

  • Tighten cylinder head bolts progressively in the sequence illustrated to: XXXXX XXXXX25 Nm (18 ft. lbs.). Stage 2-25 Nm (18 ft. lbs.). Stage 3-25 Nm (18 ft. lbs.). Stage 4-Using an angle torque gauge, tighten bolts in the same sequence to 180°.
  •  

    I checked two more databases and the procedure/specification is the same so working from experience if you increase the torque by 18 ftlbs each stage you are at 54 ftlbs before you turn the final 180 degrees.

     

    Sorry I did not include the intake manifold in the first post

     

    The spec is 18 ftlbs (Surprise!) and there is no order specified so I always work from the center out
