I'm guessing you are trying to ask what the torque specs are for the cylinder head bolts.

Install cylinder head with new bolts and torque in sequence

Torque all bolts to 22 ft. lbs.
Torque all bolts to 58 ft. lbs.

Torque all bolts to 54-61 ft. lbs. or, if angle wrench is available, turn all bolts 90-95┬░clockwise.
