We use the moly lube. It takes around 55 ft. lbs. on a 350 with the ARP bolts. You have to be careful, though, sometimes after a couple of torquings, the bolts will stretch a little easier. Quite some time ago, I had to take a set of BBC wave-lock bolts to 85 ft lbs with SAE 30 oil. That's when I started using the moly lube.
