I would say just take care to not strip your screws. if the tb has never been out before they will be tight when you go to pull it

As you probably know be sure to check the bolts with a torque wrench to factory spec. Your intake manifold is plastic so it can crack or the anchors on the tb can crack too.

That's too tight. Spec only calls for 8.75 ftlbs for the 3.7

no not really, I said 15-20 INCH POUNDS bro, spec calls for 8 and 3/4th FOOT pounds. that's two different torques.

I was just guessing when I said that cuz I don't have my Haynes manual here. but there's 12 inch pounds per foot pound.

105 Inch pound is the same as 8.75 Foot pounds. which is just past hand tight really. lol

Oops read wrong. 15-20 inch pounds is like 1.5 ftlbs, so my brain just switched that to ftlbs haha. That's way too less bro. Spec is 105 in lbs and I converted that to 8.75 ftlbs.
