most people just go to hand tight and no further, i'm not sure how many foot pounds that equals though.

about 10 lb ft should be ok. they should really be tightened in sequence too. they should bottom out, so just be sure not to over-tighten them. if you really want an exact number, find out from a shop manual.

The exact number is 7, I think. But hand tight is good, just don't crank it.

hand tightening is ok, but if you want to tighen them in sequence, do it as shown...

___3___________2

5________1________4

do it in 2 to 3 steps, and the final step make sure they are all tight, or torqued, if you are torquing them.

here is the sequence for the b16, just for the hell of it...

7___________________5
____3__________1
____4__________2
8___________________6
