Does anybody know off the top of their head how much torque is needed for the top head bolts and the 4 bolts that hold each jug on?? And, about how much antifreeze does this sled hold. Thanks in advance.

The cat performance manual says :

tighten head bolts in 3 steps to 20 ft lbs

then

tighten cylinder base nuts in 3 steps to 43 ft lbs

The book calls for : 8mm cylinder base nuts 13-20ft lbs.

10mm cylinder base nuts 29-43.5ft lbs.

Tigthen the nuts in three steps.

The '98 and '99 performance manual are both the same , the motor specs are the same for '98 and '99
