Sure!! All of the Torque Specs ae listed in Techinfo.

Tightening sequence should be done carefully. Snug them up in a criss cross pattern then torque em up in the same pattern

Are you asking about a torque wrench or an extension?

The extension is dictated by what you need on it to reach. It will not affect torque value.

Don't use a universal joint.

Buy a torque wrench that will put you in the range you need for the full top-end. If it'* ft/lbs, do the math, if it'* inch/lbs, do the math.

Either ft or in/lbs will do as long as all the values fall within the range of the wrench you buy.

Alright in that case, all you need for the job is an inch pound torque wrench. A 20-200 inch pound torque wrench will do. Don't forget to zero it out when you're done.

11 ft.lbs = 132 in.lbs

89 in.lbs = 89 in.lbs
