Can anyone tell me what the proper torque is to secure the front Y pipe flanges to the studs going into the cylinder heads? It's a '95 Legacy 2.2 with the dual port heads, so there are three 14mm nuts & studs. My manual is a bit vague on the subject. I torqued to 20ft/lbs but am afraid to go further without knowing what the spec is.

Thanks in advance!

Nathan

3) Tighten bolts which hold front exhaust pipe onto cylin-
der heads.
Tightening torque:
30±5 Nm (3.1±0.5 kg-m, 22.4±3.6 ft-lb)

that is for 1995 legacy... and image shows heads, not bolts -- so I am not sure why they said in text "bolts"

Thanks so much. My guess of 20ft/lbs was not too bad!
