Torque Specs Confirmation for 2002 Ford Focus 2.0 DOHC ZTS Intake Manifold Part #988F-9424-BE

Found this link: http://forums.focaljet.com/zetec-tun...ec-engine.html

Just wanted to see if someone could confirm this information before I go finish the install on the intake manifold. I just need a little confidence and confirmation from someone from these forums.

Thanks in advance.

You dont really need to get carried away with using a tq wrench to tighten the intake , just snug it down good and go over the bolts 2 times to make sure and you will be fine

its plastic... tight, but not too tight :)

a reasonable pull with a 3/8 ratchet or normal length box-end will probably do well (it is oring sealed, you don't have to collapse a gasket). and like tom said, evenly!

Dear Mr. Arlenn:

I was interested in the torque sequence of the plastic intake manifold. I realize that you do not have to put much torque on the intake studs. It is just the way you tighten down the studs that matter, doesn't it?

Good luck getting an answer from him since this thread was from over 5 years ago. What you need to do is snug the bolts down, starting from the inside and working your way out in a sequence. You only need to just tighten them down enough to seal the intake manifold. If you over-tighten them, you run the risk of cracking the manifold.
