Do not torque to stock specs!!! Check with FAST. If I remember correctly they are saying to tighten only to where the gaskets are Crushed.. I have seen these Manifolds Crack if you tighten to stock Tq specs.. I usually only go to around 74 # in. Make sure you use the proper Tq sequence.

89in/Ibs maximum is what my FAST 92mm install manual says. you do one pass with 45in/Ibs then the final pass to 89. and there is a Tq sequence as well but i dont have a pdf of this.

camera phone to the rescue:

I just installed a FAST which why I knew the FAST specs are the same as stock in terms of sequence and torque values.

I wasn't trying to bash your info!!! I have installed probably 150 of these and have never torqued them to those specs, And never had one with a vaccum leak!! The Composite is just not nearly as strong on the FAST as it is on the stock intakes. I usually Torque them to a Max of 80 # in.

I had a vacuum leak when I installed the stainless allen bolts supplied with the intake. A week later I swapped back to the stock hex bolts, problem solved. A buddy had the same issue.

yup the reason why you had a leak was the bolts backed out...happened to me too even using red locktite after less than 100 miles they were ~35 in lbs

most have a very low coeff of friction between the aluminum block and stainless hardware...I switched back to stock and the problem was solved...

I would run the stock hardware

i believe that stainless has a lower yield point and therefore stretches. just like if you get ss header bolts. they must be toqued multiple times before they are good. i have he ss locking header bolts and there was no chance they backed off.

Glad I re-read your post!!! I thought you were saying you went back to stock Valley cover bolts!!!! You actually went back to the Black hex bolts supplied by FAST.. The reason I respond is cause we just pulloed a FAST 90 where whomever installed it used stock bolts on the valley cover and CRACKED the **** out of the intake!!!! $1000.00 down the drain for this guy.
