Just got the head redone in my daughter's '99 Eclipse rs 2.0. Can someone tell me the torque sequence or tell me where to find out?

I don't know how much torque the Mitsu head takes. The sequence starts at the center and goes outward in a spiral. Go almost tight for the first pass and come around full torque on the second pass.


yes as tenspeed stated like this.


its says on the first pass tighten to 15 ft/lbs. Then an additional 90 degrees, then another 90 degrees.

Be sure to use new head bolts on reassembly.
