84inch lbs

tighten all at once losely by hand with an extension
with a torque wrench i personally tighten all might bolts that need to be torque'd in stages

first go to 50 then 84INCH please note INCH lbs! if you do foot lbs that thing will snap

if you wana be SUPER safe 25, 50 then 84 25 all the bolts first then 50 then 84
but for the intake manifold i dont think its needed

The upper intake manifold is torqued in two stages followed by a 90 degree angle torque at least for the 99 model. The lower intake is just torqued in two stages.
