Those are manufactured by A1 just like the Golden Eagle studs so the specs will be close to what the Golden Eagle instructions say. I believe Ben says to torque them to 75lbs though.
Give Ben (Blueprint racing) a call tomorrow and he can verify.

We actually recommend a final torque spec of 75lbs. We recommend stepping them to 35 first, then doing a final torque of 75.

Sorry about the delay in responding, I was away visiting family for the holiday.

I trq'd my head to 90lbs, cause that is what some people told me. I told my new builder, and he said it was fine, he always adds 10lbs to specs on his build. He said best to go with specs, but dont lose sleep over that small of over trq, just dont go too high. I bet your fine, but you can always back it off and try again, then again, its your motor, your call.

Too much torque is as bad as not enough with a aluminum block, head and a MLS gasket.
