Sounds like a blown headgasket or intake manifold gasket. Sounds like a blow intake gasket to me...It happened to My 86 Mustang and my 96 Lumina.
Vacuum leak or blown intake gasket.
The torque is 89 inch pounds or 7.41 foot pounds. You should never reuse a transmission gasket. If you are doing work on the transmission, replace the filter, it usually comes with a new gasket.
Should just be the gasket but check the upper side of the cylinder head while you have it apart to see if it has problems. Intake gasket leaks will present vacuum problems, if pressure is pushing air out of the affected area then it may be the head.
