That is for the plastic intake. If you have an aluminum one, it's different torque specs.

So you are saying the IM is the same on both the GT and base NA?

Far as torque specs. They have the same hardware. The brass nut in the plastic. It is possible the lower is the same on both.

Nice. Well I used those torque specs and all is good. I see there is only 1 company that makes the replacement rubber o-rings too.

I did not say that the NA and Turbo intakes were completely the same. but as Danny said the torquing vales and sequence are the same.

Personally I am very cautious with the recommend torque values if re-using the soft seals.

You may look again for how many supply the soft seal there are actually a few.
