well as far as I know, you dont want to torque them more than 10ftlbs anything after that and you start warping the valve covers. Also I would use some gasket sealer as well to keep things really tight until you clamp things down. The clamping sequence usually goes from the inner bolts to the outer bolts, but its not nearly as detrimental as head or intake bolts
