If a Mod could please add this this the DIY/FAQ info that would be great...
ORIGINALLY POSTED BY Richard_Cranium on Fortitude:
i see these being needed at least 5 times a week here. and even though most of the forum hates me for being me and wanting this place to stay engine related only, here they are AGAIN.
someone should sticky this or put in in the FAQ.

i took my ARP/FW bolts to like 95 ft/lb. this was done in part due to the research Andy (hypothetical) did in measuring stretch, fatigue, etc. this was observed by BobQ IIRC. and i do believe it was given the thumbs up. search poortex for this info in the archives for author hypothetical.
water pump = 11 lb
oil pump = 12 lb
front main seal cover into block = 11 lb
front main seal into seal housing thru oil pan = 11 lb
oil pan = 11 lb
oil pump pickup tube = 12 lb
big oil pan bolt = 30 lb
oil pump drive gear bolt = 16 lb
oil pump chain tensioner = 12 lb
oil filter housing = 11 lb + 1/4 turn
cam caps = 7 lb
cam tensioner = 7 lb
cam position wheel = 18 lb
cam position sensor = 7 lb
cam gear = 48 lb
serpentine belt tensioner = 18 lb
shouldered bolt on large roller = 20 lb
hydro tensioner body = 11 lb
small idle roller = 15 lb

power steering pump pulley = 18 lb

crank gear = 67 lb + 1/4 turn
alt bracket = 38 lb
water pump pulley = 17 lb
and as for the ARP rod bolts, this is for all the torque values on the ARP rod bolts. i know this is a SCAT link, but the rod bolts (2000 series) are the same. and you just have to know what size bolt you have and you will know your torque.
