  • 2.5L UIM torque sequence?

    Does anyone have a diagram of the sequence....took mine off, cleaned it, did the plugs, its all back together but i cant find the manifold torque sequence(couldve sworn i bookmarked it months ago)?

    Thanks for your input :)

    Outside to inside either clockwise or counterclockwise. Start at one corner and work your way in. 7-10 ft pounds of torque.

        I wanted to say that it was inside out ... need to double check. As noted its 7 to 10 ft/lbs, so pretty much hand tight.
        - 12 Focus SE
        - 99 Contour SeVT <- 3L/NPG Turbo
        - 2k Contour SVT - #2137

          Well....things didn't go according to plan(i was wondering, since everything came off perfectly after 19 yrs :-O ) on torquing down the 1st bolt, I got to about 10lbs and it bloody snapped! Luckily enough was sticking out of the LIM to remove it. So now I sit trying to source out at least 1 new bolt so my only car can be mobile again.

          A former customer of mine is a performance V6 builder, I'm waiting to hear back that he hopefully has something in his stuff.

            Outside to in. When you do inside-out it tends to bind up the gasket a little.

            Go to a screw supply store. They can access the same type of bolt.

                While poking through the garage for swap material, I came across the old package for the TB spacer I put on a mustang I had years ago......They are almost identical!
                Thread perfectly, just 1/8-1/4 in longer.

                I'll either cut em down or washer em up I guess. They are grade 8.8 too.
