SOURCE: need torque specs
Valve Rocker Arm Bolt 19 N·m + 30° (14 lb ft+ 30°)
A GM dealer shows me another source, which says 32 Nm (24 lb-ft). Not sure which one is right but they screwed up my car.

If the vehicle is fitted with a Rocam engine, the valve clearance is not adjustable, hydraulic lifters.
The camshaft caps are torqued in two stages, first 10Nm and than 90 degrees

You need to buy the manual, because you also need to know the order in which to torque them.
usually you start at the middle and circle outward.
But they can differ. Some cars you always need to put in new head bolts. Others are done in several stages. This is too critical to take chances on.
If you really can't afford $19 for a manual, go to the library and xerox the pages.
