    132 in lbs should be 2nd torque.be sure to use Ford sealant in corners. Possible cracked intake.try smoking the vehicle to double check for vaccum leak.

    once I used sealant on the fel-pro gasket i had a problem then I called them then they told me that no sealant is to be used and that it would cause the gasket that is made on the lower gasket not to seal. I used the fel-pro gasket that has the black gasket that is made on the valley pan
