JBA Bolts Torque

To what specific foot pounds of torque should the JBA headers be tighten down to? the instructions don't say.

You'll never get a torque wrench on more than 2 of the 14 bolts- so it's kind of a moot point.

I believe the spec is only something like 18lb/ft, which is just as tight as you can stand to go with two fingers on a 4" long wrench (required to reach several of the bolts!)

Whats most important is to start in the center when tightening a little at a time, and working your way out to the ends. Don't "cherry pick" and over-tighten the couple of easy to get at bolts. This wil require alot of patience as you go from above the car to below the car... and back again. Don't tighten all at once, but gradually as you work your way out from the center- out. Oh yeah, and have fun!

BTW- it's a very good idea to re-tighten once after a couple of drive cycles.
