Torque for Stage 8

Do these bolts fit the 2009 4.6 3 valve? Can these bolts be torqued? If so, what would the torque be?

I am adding long tube headers to my 09 mustang gt and I am interested in these bolts - michael 2 years ago

These will work just fine on your 09. Stage 8 recommends 26-32lbs of torque, however, it is very difficult to gain access to all of them with a torque wrench, so I would just make sure they are tightened enough to compress the gasket appropriately, and install the clips to keep them from backing off and you should be good to go.
