Rocker Arm/Intake Torque Spec

What is the torque spec for the factory rocker arms and intake???
It's a 97 F-150 built in the 4th month (if that matters).

For the rocker arms, tighten in two stages
Stage 1: Tighten to 5Nm (44 lb-in)
Stage 2: Tighten to 35Nm (26 lb-ft)

As for the intakes...upper, lower or both? My Service manual only covers Mustangs and we have different uppers, but if you need specs for the lower just let me know and I can get a diagram for you.

For both upper and lower...thanks for the help!

Tighten the bolts in this order


Tighten all bolts to 5Nm (44 lb-in), then go back and tighten them all to 10Nm (89 lb-in).

I don't know the sequence for the F150 upper since it is different than the Mustang's, sorry
