    Does anyone here know what the proper torque of the intake and exhaust studs are? Im in the process of replacing them. Id rather use a torque wrench to tighten them down just to be on the safe side.

    6 to 8 ft/lbs should be enough - remember that if muffler hangs a bit off center, to add a hanger strap to the bottom to keep it from rotating enough to pull the studs out

    depends mostly on how flat your exhaust flange is. 8 ft lbs and double nutted is what I do.
