When it was time for reassembly, Bulletproof's technicians took great care to ensure that every fastener was tightened to the proper torque spec and in the correct sequence. This kind of attention to detail goes a long way when you consider how easy it is to destroy expensive parts such as the cast aluminum intake manifold shown here. This manifold required a specific two-part sequence and just 8 ft-lb of torque to fasten. Anything more could easily crack the part.
