You need an aftermarket serviice manual from Haynes or Chilton.
They will have that kind of info.
I know of no car (I don't know them all) where that is needed and depending on the cover material (sheet steel or cast), could lead to warping and new leaks. I always use a thin film of silicone whether it is specified or not and there are torque specs for ALL valve covers I have ever seen.

SOURCE: torque specs for valve cover
not sure there is such a thing. I've never seen anybody use a torque wrench on valve cover bolts. Just use a nut driver (screwdriver type) or a 1/4 inch drive ratchet, and tighten as much as you can. They don't need to be very tight.
