9 is correct although I only torqued mine to 7ft/lbs. The gasket wanted to squeeze out to much if I torqued it any more. I don't have any leaks so all is good.flatwhitecrx said:9 ft-lbs? really? I read somewhere that it was like 33. but I don't know..tyson said:do NOT over torque them little bolts and nuts surrounding the oil pan!
absolutely NO MORE than FINGER tight. (9 ft-lbs as stated above) thats all it takes. do them all in correct sequence and let the gasket do its job.
I need to know, I plan on doing this soon
