98 Vortec 4.3 v6 Intake & head bolt torque

What is the torque specs for the intake on my 4.3? It is the newer plastic plenum style. I had to replace intake gaskets due to a major coolant leak in them.

i dont remember the intake bolt torque.. but its in inch lbs... i can go get the book real quick if you really need it. but the head bolt torque is 22ftlb, then TURN the short bolts to 55 degrees, the medium bolts to 65 degrees, and the longer bolts to 75 degrees... making sure you go in the right pattern... kinda a pain in the rear
