If that is what the book says. Then it's right. All models use the same.

According to my 2001-2003 Haynes manual it's 25, 50, 50, additional 1/4 turn AND there's a particular tightening sequence of the bolts. If you don't have that sequence, it's like this...

10..6...2...3...7
.
.

9....5...1...4...8

NitroPT,
Are all bolts used to hold components to the engine block softer than the engine block itself?

That is an interesting question. There is no straight answer. This really has more to do with the casting,sleeves,thread inserts,etc. Generally it is only important when assembling a Performance built engine that will be operated at high RPM.
I would sometimes Time Sert all the threads on a high horsepower engine in the critical area's.

Then there is the question of durometer test a block or head ? Not many do that.

Recently I was given engineering specification for a block and head to come up with a solution to sealing the factory head. I had to request a complete durometer testing first before I suggested idea's. I wish I could say more but at this time it is under design for a racing team. But I will only say that gasoline is not used but the green handle at the stations.
