Default FAQ B series torque specs

Hey guys,

I just got done again compiling a list of things that I will be torqueing down while I assemble my motor and do my swap. I'll have a FSM handy, but I dont wanna be flipping through pages looking for torque specs, so I got all the numbers beforehand and put them in a word document.

I figured I'd go ahead and share them with you guys. This is right out of the 94+ Integra FSM and the 90-93 Teg FSM.

EDIT: I've updated the list to let you guys know what year/model the specs are applicable to. These are all the specs I got out of the 94+ Teg, 90-93 Teg, 89-91 Civic/CRX VTEC supplement FSM, and my 84-91 USDM Haynes manual. The only number I got from the Haynes though was the Civic/CRX fuel banjo bolt and service bolt specs.

CYLINDER HEAD BOLT TORQUE SPECS (tightening) / (loosening)
8, 4, 2, 6, 10 <---intake order 3, 7, 9, 5, 1
7, 3, 1, 5, 9 <---exhaust order 4, 8, 10, 6, 2

Torque in steps: 22ft-lbs (264in-lbs), Then to 63ft-lbs (756in-lbs) (final spec) 94+ Teg
Torque in steps: 22ft-lbs (264in-lbs), Then to 61ft-lbs (732in-lbs)(final spec) 90-93 Teg / B16's


CAMSHAFT COVER SPECS
13, 9, 5, 1, 3, 7, 11 (side of cam cover closest to intake)
14, 10, 6, 2, 4, 8, 12 (side of cam cover closest to exhaust)

Shown above is one cam cover, sequence is the same for intake and exhaust cam cover.

#1-10 20ft-lbs (240in-lbs) #11-14 7.2ft-lbs (86in-lbs) (94+ B18C specs)
#1-10 16ft-lbs (192in-lbs) #11-14 8ft-lbs (96in-lbs) (B16A specs)
**not sure what the specs are for non-VTEC motors, sorry**

Seat each camshaft by pushing it towards the dizzy side of cylinder head.

When I get home in a few hours I'll check and see if I can find B16 specs, and I'll also add some of the CRX specs if they are different.
