most all intakes are torqued to the engine's spec's and also in the torque sequence. This includes aftermarkets. If this is a windsor, just be careful of the end bolts. even the cast iron intakes have been known to break off on the ends.
22lb-ft , but the sequence is to complicated to put on a web board . Well I think this is it

This is what I can remember off the top of my head but check it in a manual , atleast you know what to look for and if you cant , check back with me tomorrow and a will find out forsure , but this is close enouf and as long as you go in steps you will be ok just go around at least 3 times till you reach 22 lb-ft , no more than that that is the spec no matter what manifold they are al the same . Oh did you guys know that over torqueing intake bolts can tear up you bottom end , it pulls on them heads , in turn pulls up on the block and distorts the mains , just a little tid bit , neat huh!
I was really surprised when I found this out.
