You are suppose to use Plastigage to figure out how much they need to be torqued but i torqued mine at 43 foot lbs and and would recommend 37-45 foot lbs. Some people say 37 foot lbs but i used a torque wrench and 43 just seem to be the right amount to remove the bolts. 43 ft lbs is what i used to install them. Do this at your own risk! The only proper way to do this is to buy the gage from Autozone and follow the instruction manual. My cars been running for 5 years since i did it.
