Intake manifold question on 2004 Ford Mustang GT

Mine has become a leaker, a common occurence for a 4.6 motor,I understand.I'll be using a new oem for replacement.Any kinks in doing this job? What torque do I use to reinstall the bolts?Thank you.

I believe the torque spec is 19 foot lbs,but honestly I use a small cordless impact that achieves the same result.Just make sure all is super clean before you go back together.
