  • Rocker Cover Bolts

    Just a quick question! How tight do you torque the rocker cover bolts and intake plenum bolts to? I removed them two at a time to paint the heads to match the car and have tightned them back up just by hand till they were "nipped up".

              Cheers guys i think it should be ok. If anyone dont have torx bits an 8mm multipoint socket also does the trick!
