take the 89 and divide by 12... But 10 ft lbs won't kill the gaskets, do not go any further than 10 ft lbs

Footpounds /12 = inchpounds.

Edit - Too slow!

Alright cool, no sanding here, I'm really careful at what I did. So zigzag and do torquing in sequences... what should I tighten them down to?

EDIT - Found it in techinfo.
Maybe YOU didn't sand that manifold, but SOMEONE did.

He didn't and neither did anyone else. He used a DA with a scotchbrite cookie on it.

Hmm... no signs of sanding, but it could have been done. Not sure if the dealer would have did that or not.

All done as of today. For some reason, I am now pulling the full stock boost, I know that because I got some wheelspin with traction on, as with before, I didn't.
