Edelbrock manifold torque specs....
does it make a diffrence in torque on bolts from a factory to a after market manifold... i have an Edelbrock and want to be sure of the torque on it before i really put it to the test.
Thanks...Chas"Every man dies, not every man really lives......."

I believe when I installed mine it was 25 ft. lbs. But to be sure email Tech Support at Edelbrock and they will give you the correct specs and torque sequence.

3/8"-16 bolts, 30 ft-lbs. torque; same as with the stock manifold.

The last Edelbrock I used was a RPM Q-jet intake. It said to torque the bolt to 25 ft/lbs and had a diagram of the sequence. Started at the center and crossed back and forth then worked to the ends. I can scan it if you need it and email it to you, just let me know your email.

Im with JohnZ 30-35 Lbs. is fine. Not really that critical, NEVER had a problem with leakage due to torque specs.

not that 30 would hurt....i hate the thought of them coming loose!
Thanks for your input.
