I have PN 1543601 which is the standard head bolt used on the 5.0. In the directions it says to torque to 80ft-lb with 30wt. However I have read on this message board that the top bolts should have 10ft-lb more then the bottom bolts for when you torque the intake down. SO should I do 90/80 or should I follow ARPs recommendation and torque them all to 80? Thanks.

Torque them all to 80. Its a fastener streatch and clamping force your trying to achieve.

DO not overtorque the intake. 20ft lbs max, I just wrench snug em.... as I cant access most of my bolts with anything that could give a torqueable value.
