intake manicfold to head bolt torque?

Getting ready to put everything back and realized I don't know how tight. Plastic manifolds are SO easy to overtighten. Looking for the specs on a 98 2.5l before I finish replacing the 'code p0410 p1411' stuff.

Thanks

Think I found my own answer unless someone knows something special?

Intake pipe on cylinder head M6 (micro-encaps) 10Nm (7.5ftlb)

What's a micro-encaps? The formed head with bearing surface?

Micro-encapsulated = new bolts come with a little sealant on the threads next to the bolt head.

Hello BY,
How about re-using the old bolts by using Locktite Blue...?

I have never bought new intake manifold bolts so I'm not sure what comes on them. I just clean the threads well & torque to spec, never any sealant or problems.
