Heya, i've got my Valve cover off replacing the gasket. What are the torque specs and tighten order?

As with most parts you always start in the center and work your way outward jumping side to side. I didnt know there was a "torque spec" for the valve cover.

Me either, But coming from working solely on mazdas i've learned to appreciate finding out torque specs and order (if there is one).
Just covering my ass and do it right the first time

i'm pretty sure they should be torqued to 10Nm (7lbs)

but for the order i'm not too sure, but i would imagine you start at the middle and like mike-2ptzero said work your way out in a cross pattern. thats what i did for mine and it worked fine.
