Once all the manifold bolts are in place, torque down the bolts to 50-55 lb-ft and then reinstall the heat shield at the front of the manifold. The factory hardware is reused with the bolt sleeves. This allows the manifold to expand and contract, reducing the likelihood of a crack. One of the advantages of the ATS manifold is that it is equipped with a pyrometer opening so we could easily screw in our EGT probe for our TS Performance gauges.
