Read my build thread when I fitted the VCT head to my ED block...

I used ED torque for the headbolts and I had oil going into the water which was possibly a faulty MLS gasket... Then I used a new gasket and AU torque settings and had no problem...

Its and AU head, cam, and cam bolt... So you should probably use the AU torque spec for that gear...

Again read my build thread linked in my sig... I covered all the problems I had in detail and the conversion process in there... Then pulled out that mixed bag and fitted a full AU motor...
