'96... what are the specs for the throttle body and throttle body spacer?

My book lists 106 inch-lb for the TB, but doesn't list the spacer to manifold torque?? :confused:

1.21 gigawatts. And if that doesn't work, try 42. :thumbsup:

But what's the question? :bonkers:

So, nobody has a manual for a 96-99? Or you just can't find the spacer to manifold specs either??

I moved in June and haven't seen my FSM since... If I can dig it out of the garage somewhere, I'll look it up and let you know today.

Why are the upper bolts different from the lower bolts???

BTSOM. My thoughts exactly.

Hmm... I could understand if they were a different length, but they're not..

Maybe I'll just tighten everything to 89 in-lbs... This wouldn't be the first time I massaged the torque specs to prevent problems - I installed the intake manifold with 75in-lb instead of the recommended 89, due to a problem with the last install cracking the intake.
