At the 'putting it back together' stage of the top end rebuild of my 4.2 LSE.

It's a '93 suffix A engine with 14 bolt heads, and I'm using composite gaskets with the non-stretch original bolts.

Can someone confirm whether I should torque the bolts to the original tin gasket 68 ft/lb or the 28 ft/lb + 90 degrees + 90 degrees?

(I know I'm losing CR but I prefer reliability rather than power)

TIA

As per the original gaskets. DON'T use degrees with standard bolts.
