I searched scooby mods and couldn't come up with a definitive answer. What is the correct torque spec for the header bolts? You know those six things hanging down from the block... ;)



P.S. Mods I wasn't sure where to put this since there is an exhaust thread in both N/A and the other kind of motor area... :lol:

22.4 ft lbs for the front, same for the rear section

13.0 ft lbs for the converter to centre pipe.

Peaty says 28.9, Hondaslayer says 22.4...? I think I'll add them both, multiply by four, subtract Pi, divide by .5, and then what ever a quarter of the remaining is should be "balls on accurate." Right? ;)

You do have a 05 X correct?

I pulled it directly from the service manual.

The 22.4 ft/lbs have it. Thanks guys for the info. Now I need to go out and take 7.6 ft/lbs of torque off the bolts. I put 30 on earlier. :(

Torque 'em till they strip and then back off a half turn.
I see you and I are from the same school of thought.

Tighten down til it free spins then back it off 1/4 turn.
