Without actually finding the spec for them, because they are 8mm bolts I would take an educated guess and say no more than 30 lbs. Look closely at the number on the head of the bolts. If they are 8.8, then no more than 30 lbs. If they are 10.9 you could go a little more but remember you are bolting into an aluminum head so not too much!!!

I don't have the Bentley in front of me, but I believe the spec is 15 ft-lbs.

what is wrong with what you have? these are great engines, and you can make power with them, they also have torque which most Honda engines dont have
