Does anyone know what the torque settings are for a ford el exhaust manifold. I have looked in my owners manual and a gregorys manual, they both say tighten the bolts to the specified torque :shock: specified where.

I know most of us just tighten them by hand but i want to get it right this time. Dont want another exhaust leak :roll:

+1

no problem imtroidz...but as XRfairmont67 said, you're screwing into an alloy head...they are softer than iron blocks.

Also yes, if you are using a long a** torque wrench, it will feel very soft :)
