Mitsubishi torque spec for the 2.0 and 2.6 head bolts are 65 to 72 foot pounds cold. Step one - all bolts to 15 lbs. Step two - all bolts to 30 lbs. Step three all bolts to final torque, used head bolts 65 lbs (not recommend re-using these kind of bolts), new bolts 70 to 72 is perfect! Bolt sequence, start with the center two bolts and work your way out. If you are not familiar with standard head bolt tightening sequences it would be a good idea to have a trained tech do the work.
