Default Re: Just got my engine....

A thicker fuel resistant gasket material for the intake gasket is a good idea. The Stock ones like to come apart after a while once it gets fuel and oil soaked. The stock intake gasket is an easy fix. 12ft pounds for the larger 8mm head bolts is about right. I must admit, I torque by feel. Just keep the head snug. IF you have no lock washers on the head acorns, you may want to put some on there. Some times the factory uses locks, sometimes not. There are several fun things to do.. Enjoy the ride...
