Third Generation Camaro Fastener Torque Specifications V8
Here is a quick chart of the torque specifications for V8 engines on 3rd generation Camaros. These torque specifications are correct for all V8 options the 5.0L L03 TBI, 5.0L LB9 TPI, and the 5.7L L98 TPI.

Just be sure to double check that you’re using the correct setting on your torque wrench, its always better to double check that its ft·lb or in·lb and not the other, that way you don’t break anything.

When it comes to things like Intake Manifolds and Cylinder Heads use the proper torque sequence and to do a three phase fastening. (ex. Cylinder Heads go at 68 ft·lb so do the torque sequence first with 35 ft·lb then 50 and then 68.)
