I really don't have the time to do much research, my internet access is very limited right now. thanks for your help!
Same as the Ej257 ARP torque specs...

1) Studs hand tightened to bottom of the block. (Use Moly grease, like what ARP supplys)
2) Put the Head Gasket on
3) Using oem PATTERN not procedure (middles, cross corners, cross corners) tighten in 3-4 torque steps. 15, 30, 55, 85ftlbs
4) Let it sit for about an hour then re-check torque.
