    Intake bolt re-torque ?

    After recently installing and putting some miles on my new ls6 intake i decided to recheck the bolt torque. While retorquing in sequence i found that some of the bolts where a lot looser then others. Is this normal? for example the # 8 bolt in sequence seemed to take a full rotation or more before torquing while most of the others would click before 1/4 of a turn. has anyone else ran into anything like this? seems odd to me that a few bolts would be loose and others still snug.

    I havent noticed that, and i seem to take mine off every two years to replace the knock sensors to pass emissions. I dont know what the specs call for, but i hand tighten everything down, then final tighten them. Start in the middle, and work your way front and back. Hope this helps. Dont use lock tite! Mine are so hard to pull out, im always afraid im gonna break them.
