Go with 25. My brother's instructions said 22:confused: but when it was at 22 it blue smoked badly. When he tightened it up to 25 it stopped smoking.
I got that problem right now (last night, for the first drive around the block). Question, did it foul a particular plug (leaky port on intake), or were ALL the plugs slightly oily...?
Gonna look into this tonight. Went to bed EXTREMELY disappointed at first, but maybe this is it! (light at end of tunnel).

I pulled the upper intake off last night, and rechecked all the lower intake bolts after putting the motor thru its first heat cycle. Some bolts were only at about 15. Even through I tightened them in 12/16/20 increments, and rechecked all of them twice after that.
Retightened to 20ft/lbs last night, and seems to have cured my oil consumption. :)
