Default ARP headER Stud Torque

Flame me if you will for buying the damn things.

Does anyone know the torque spec on the stud and on the nut?

I've searched all over and haven't found it. ARP's site says this kit (434-1301) hasn't been posted and their link to tech support request gives you a 404 error. . .

OK, just going to answer my own thread here for posterity.

According to the flyer that came with my heads (AFRs) bolts for both the intake and exhaust manifolds should not be torqued, the should be snugged hand tight. I used a standard L-shaped hex key and did just that.

The nuts are still an open question.

Don't quote me but I remember doing 11ft/lbs then 18 as final torque for my MLS header gaskets...
