Default Engine Torque Specs

Mr. Posey is doing a head gasket replacement... Let's not even talk about what a can of worms this has turned into. Point is, he'll finish it tomorrow. I wanted to double check the torque specs before the deed is done.

Head bolts - Torque first to 50 ft lb, then to 105 ft lb.

Intake manifold - Torque first to 12 in lb, then slowly, in sequence, to 12 ft lb.

Does that sound right, my Mopar Magicians?
