Answerto start with, and not to be a jerk this is not the engine you should be working on if you come to this site for torque spec! with this engine it takes 5 different steps to torque this engine 1=?, 2=?, 3=? , 4=?, 5=? then your big problem is not here it will be with the timing belt due to the 3.0l 4 cam engine

someone had wrote this as an answer to this question and after working on a catera i will say it takes a skill level that most back yard mechanics only wish they had I do not recommend replacing head gaskets on this car even if you have done several head jobs in the past. i run a car lot and I am a skilled mechanic and I will just say I will never do another head job on a catera but if you have already pulled the motor apart before you have read this here is the torque specs for you and good luck i hope you know what you are doing
