2006 Mustang GT Torque Specs and patterns

This blog post will act as my running list of all of the torque specs I run across while working on the Mustang. I occasionally forget to mention them in the videos so the idea is that you should be able to come here and find what you need. Also, its just nice to have one consolidated list. I will have it all sorted by part name and the patterns will all be at the bottom of the list.

** Requires specific torque pattern, See diagrams at the bottom of the page.
