Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

Removed and replaced the upper intake manifold on my 2000 24v duratec.
Need the torque specs for the 8 bolts (5/16 or 8mm).
Some sources claim 84 in lbs (7 ft lbs). Haynes (very unreliable) has 18 ft lbs. Other show values in between.
If anyone has the RIGHT number, cast in stone, from on high, no-question-about-it, I hope you can share it.

Thanks, RY
