The site in the KB is dead for the info.
Here is a site that shows it, plus one for ALL intakes.

The general rule is torque from the inside out. That is torque the bolts in the center of the head first and work out from there. And torque up in a few stages.

The same rule will work on the intake. inside to outside.

I don't think the "exact" order is that critical.

When removing to the opposite, loosen the outer bolts first and work towards the center.

Great link to 350 info

Here is the guild I used on my 62 Bel Air 350 build. It shows the torque spec and pattern to use.

For heads, mains you want to have the steps at a minimum, 15 ftlbs apart. This is due to break away torque being higher from friction.
