Here you go, I hope this is what you were looking for:
For 1987-94 models, the cylinder head bolts are tightened in 3 progressive steps. Tighten them in the proper sequence as follows:
Step 1: 50-55 ft. lbs. (68-75 Nm) Step 2: 60-65 ft. lbs. (81-88 Nm) Step 3: 70-85 ft. lbs. (95-115 Nm) Let me know if I can assist you with anything else.

Please don't forget to rate!
1st step 15-22 ft.lbs.
2nd step 30-37 ft. lbs.
3rd step Tighten the bolts an additional 90-120 degrees
Do you need the tightening sequence?

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.
