GM recommends 65ft-lb on the short bolts and 75 ft-lb long and done in 3 steps in a certain order.
Get a GM performance book from a good dealer, it gives the blueprint #s you need on the complete motor and how to build one. I prefer studs with aluminum heads and use Permatex #2 sparlingly for the watersealing ones.
Luv the smell of NITRO in the morning.
