I just need to find out he pounds to which I have to tighten the bolts for the intake. My question is regarding the intake bolts. How many pounds do the intake bolts have to be when installing them?

I'm showing 22Nm...which is about 16 Lb Ft.

The torque is based on the bolt's size. Here is from the manual:

Intake Manifold
Thread Measure
M8 22 Nm
M7 15 Nm
M6 10 Nm
