You're the first person that I've ever heard of that was concerned with intake torque specs.

Does this mean that now everyone will be feeling guilty about not breaking out the torque wrench to install an intake? Please don't say here that you eat a candy bar with a knife and fork..LOL!!

If in doubt and if you're using an Edelbrock aluminum intake and heads for example then call their 1-800 number to get the right on the money answer. Some manufactures may specify a different torque value for their products,better to know for sure instead of taking a chance and the messing up the threads.

Very good point I'll give them a call Monday morning.
The reason that I ask is that I'm going back to my 2x4 set-up,I'll be putting my single 750 back on the shelf for now,till I get a bug up my butt to put the 750 back on.

according to edelbrock 25 foot pounds. There is a tightening sequence starting in the middle and working out. A retorque is also required after heating up engine and sealant is required on the bolt threads to prevent oil leakage

Never torqued one. Just used a ratchet and what feels right. Would guess 25 lbs
