what is everyone using as torque specs with cometic gaskets? I am using ARP head studs which I believe say 95ft lb. Of course we just did heads/cam on my 92 Dakota and there is water in the oil. I also have a Vortech on it but we have not even boosted it yet. To top it off it broke a valve spring. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Cometic gaskets require that the head/block surfaces be a minimum 50 RA (roughness average) surface finish for proper sealing.
