Go to Autozone or similar business for a free computer scan. They will be happy to sell you any needed parts. I have no idea what a 'locked intake manifold' is, but I believe that I would seek out a different mechanic. Good luck!

It is criss cross from front to back around 15 foot pounds so snugging them with a ratchet should do the trick

Intake torque on top & bottom bolts

Apply sealer to the lower intake manifold bolts prior to installation. On the 5.0L and 5.7L engines, install the bolts and torque in sequence as follows:
Step 1: 71 inch lbs. (8 Nm).
Step 2: 106 inch lbs. (12 Nm).
Step 3: 11 ft. lbs. (15 Nm).

I have been told that you have to replace the head bolts when replacing the head gasket because the bolts will stretch. Is this true?

If you change the head bolts that's the safest bet for trouble free operation. But, I've changed head bolts on Hondas for years and they never stretched. I know this is for a Kia. My best guess is that it's not necessary since the Chilton based manuals don't say to do this.

If the head is torqued down to specifications and it leaks, then I would say, otherwise. Even torque is more important than bolt stretch, especially if the bolts don't stretch so much that the head gasket can't be tight against the head and block.

Toquer on the intake

start in the center working in an expanding square pattern crossing over the manifold on the first 2 bolts. tighten in 3 steps. these are low torque fasteners, don't over tighten & use locktite.
If reusing the fasteners, apply threadlock GM P/N 12345382 or equivalent to the threads of the lower intake manifold bolts.
Install the lower intake manifold bolts.

Notice: Proper lower intake manifold fastener tightening sequence and torque is critical. Always follow the tightening sequence, and torque the intake manifold bolts using the 3 step method. Failing to do so may distort the crankshaft bearing bore alignment and cause damage to the crankshaft bearings.

Tighten the lower intake manifold bolts.

from front of engine tighten 2 bolt back left side, then 3rd bolt back right side, then 3 bolt back left side, then 2nd bolt back right side, then back bolt left side, back bolt right side, then front bolt left side, then front bolt right side

Tighten the bolts on the first pass in sequence (1-8) to 3 N·m (27 lb in).
Tighten the bolts on the second pass in sequence (1-8) to 12 N·m (106 lb in).
Tighten the bolts on the final pass in sequence (1-8) to 15 N·m (11 lb ft).
