Torquing the '87 Cabrio cylinder head is a three-step operation. Using the correct 12-point socket and - most importantly, following the correct tightening sequence - torque the head bolts to 30 ft/lbs. Next, go back over the bolts in the same sequence and snug them to 44 ft/lbs. A final torque sequence requires all head bolts to be tightened an additional 1/2 turn. Also suggest you invest in both the Robert Bentley and Haynes service manuals for your vehicle. All specifications, torque values and, where necessary, the correct sequence of tightening, are provided.
Every Volkswagen owner needs John Muir's "How to Keep Your Volkswagen Alive." In it you will find the head torque on upright engines is 25 lb-ft--torque to 7 lb-ft and rest for 20 minutes, torque to 12 lb-ft and rest for 20 minutes, torque to 25 lb-ft and rest for 30 minutes, then recheck the torque one last time. And remember, always torque head nuts in a criss-cross pattern. I would suggest buying a Haynes manual for your bug. it should have the specs for it. (you can find them at Autozone) The official service manual is by Robert Bentley and is far superior to Haynes.
Torque specifications are different from motor to motor. These specifications state how tightly the head bots are to be installed. Correct torque insure that the head gasket is sealed properly and correct torque sequence insures that the head itself is not warped in the installation process. Refer to a engine repair manual (Chilton's, Hayne's, etc.) for your vehicle/motor for the correct specs and torqueing sequence. You can usuall find these manuals at your local auto parts store. Hope this helps.
