Intake manifold torque

There are a few bolts on my intake that I cant get a socket on let alone a torque wrench. So I guess at it.
How do I torque them ?
Should I worry ?

Re: Intake manifold torque

you can use a crows foot on a toque wrench and tighten after doing some math on how far it extends the beam on the wrench - force times lever arm = torque. I just used a wrench by feel on my inners.

Re: Intake manifold torque

Always just used a wrench on mine too. Tighten it down till the wrench slips off and busts your knuckles, and call it good.
