A. Here you go Noël!

Use the new "Torque Plus Angle" procedure as follows only for new head bolts.

  1. Tighten all ten (10) cylinder head bolts in the sequence shown to 70 Nm (51 lb ft).
  2. Retighten all ten (10) cylinder head bolts in the sequence shown to 70 Nm (51 lb ft).
  3. Tighten all ten (10) cylinder head bolts in the sequence shown an additional 90° to 100°.

For the previously released cylinder head gasket and bolts, install the cylinder head bolts and torque in sequence in 2 steps:

  1. Step 1 68-81 Nm (50-60 lb ft).
  2. Step 2 108-122 Nm (80-90 lb ft).
