do not seem to have this model listed in my book ,but a kia shuma 1.6 is showing as 49nm then slacken and turn 360? ,the sportage is showing as 80 to 87 nm ,so if this is a petrol then looking at the book most of the engines are showing the 80/87 nm ,and the head bolts should be renewed ,what i do is to pull down in the order from middle outwards ,firstly with a rachet then the big bar and then check them for a third time to be sure,a 80cm long bar with about a grunt a strain ,diesels two strains and grunt ,yes scientific i know but its the experiance of the feel of the bolt strectching ,but 80 or so nm will do you well but if one starts turning too much back it off and change the bolt before it breaks.
