Torque is 85 ft/lbs of torque. Tighten the bolts starting in the center of the head and working your way out to the ends. Go very slowly and only tighten slightly each time you move from the center to the outside. You must pull the head down very slowly each time. Here is the sequence,

Torque new cylinder head bolts in sequence to 44 ft lb. Loosen bolts approximately two turns, then torque bolts in sequence to 44 ft lb. Turn bolts an additional 90 degrees in sequence, then an additional 90 degrees
