    torque wrench is RECOMMENDED.
    i put mine on with a motherfucking ratchet and then a regular wrench , then the ratchet, then got pissed, then the smoke break , then the ratchet, fuck working on preludes.
    I had no problems of leaking or anything without a tq wrench tho

    in theory once its been torqued it should not be re-used, but i would prob try and use it...

    just be ready to shut it down if it revs out of control

    There isn't a specific bolt pattern to follow, just work your way from the center out. I always hand tighten from the middle out, then torque them down from the middle out. Be sure to work the top and bottom bolts evenly.

    I'd do something like:

    *edit*
    You should replace the gasket. I'm not saying that the one you have won't work again, but it would be MUCH better to replace it.

    And, DO use a torque wrench on the IM if at all possible. Auto-zone will lend you one for free, you just have to slap down a deposit.

    I changed it up.. If you already wrote it down/printed it, re-record it. I had mis-placed the center bolt on the old one due to the angle of the thing.. Kind of an illusion. The other one will work, but this one is the right one.
