Both the Haynes and the FSM state 47 ft/lbs. This seems incredibly low to me. Most other turbo engines in my experience run closer to 60+. Would I be taking it too far to go a few lbs more? I'm thinking 55.

I would go with the FSM SKD in other words 47. There is a reason it is what it is. Just like the order in which you tighten, and the steps you follow.

True but he sounded like he was going to go higher. So I said 50 max.

Headblt torque that low is a bit ridiculous though. Supra Mk3s were blowing headgaskets at 50 ft/lbs, why would I expect my engine to hold 15+ psi at 47........

The stock head gaskets are capable of holding upwards of 40psi of boost supossedly. Remember we have the good VG30ET not the crappy 7M...

Factory says 47 I would go 47.

VG30, 7M, KA24.......... all started life as truck engines. ;) One reason why they deliver much torque and don't like to rev. The 7M is every bit as good as the rest.

47 47 47 47 47 47 47 47 47 47 47 47 47

if the factory service manual says 47 then there is a reason.

Well lets see............a little snow............ or hurricanes. Think I'll take a little snow every now and then, in exchange for not having to get my car off my neighbors roof several times a year. ;)
