Tighten to 24 to 31 Nm which is 17.7 ft lb to 22.8 ft lbs

Is that it? That's all you don't have to set them with a feeler gage and does it have to be on tdc when I do this?

Just make sure they are not on high cam when you tighten them. There is a lash spec but the only way to change it is to get different length pushrods.
