Tighten the cylinder head bolts 1 thru 8 in the sequence shown in Cylinder Head Tightening Sequence . Using the 4 step torque turn method, tighten according to the following values:

  • First-All to 61 N·m (45 ft. lbs.)
  • Second-All to 88 N·m (65 ft. lbs.)
  • Third-All (again) to 88 N·m (65 ft. lbs.)
  • Fourth + 1/4 Turn Do not use a torque wrench for this step
