It varies for different cars. The B18b is less than the GSR and Type R
If you are talking about the GSR there is a two step torquing process and a torquing order. It would be too difficult to try and explain.
Bolts 20 and 32 are the same spec but the smaller #16's are less.
First step is 14 ft/lbs and Second Step is 38 Ft/lbs for the larger bolts and the torque spec for the small bolts is 12. You can double check this in the Helms or Haynes manuals as well as the torquing patterns (IMPORTANT)
The torque specs for bolts #20 and #32 are 20 ft/lbs.
The torque specs for bolts #16 and #17 are 86 in/lbs.
The torque specs for the bolts for the valve cover are also 86 in/lbs.
Make sure you use in/lbs for the smaller 6mm bolts or you will snap them off. Im sure alot of people on here have done that. I hope you get this before you do anything and dont torque the smaller bolts in ft/lbs or you will be buying new ones from the dealer.
yep. criss cross pattern. make sure the cam caps are oriented the right way before you tighten or you can have a cam rub against them...been known to happen even with 25 yr experience engine builders who get distracted or rushed.
