SOURCE: I have a 1998 Holden
I cannot find a EL20B in my data,but all Astra listed had the same head sequence as shown:
10 6 2 3 7
9 5 1 4 8
the torque specs for the C20XE,C20NE,X20XEV were all
25nm(18lb/ft),-then 90 deg,-90deg,-90deg.
Z20LET were as above plus an additional 15deg.
Same data for smaller and larger engines(except a couple that were 45deg instead of 15)
Make sure that you replace the head bolts with new,they are torque to yield bolts that are designed to stretch to 'plastic' state,and should not be reused.
Put grease(graphite if you have it) under bolt heads and washers,oil the threads.
Usually the head sets come with the torque specs.
I hope this helps you.
