Header bolts torque specs?

Does anyone know how tight the bolts should be when installing Borla Headers on a 2000 RS?

Someone told me I have an exhaust leak that's causing me to lose a lot of HP, so I'm gonna go buy a torque wrench and get my baby fixed. Thanks in advance.

make sure your headers aren't cracked like mine, look right by the stabilizer straps on the tubes...makes an exhaust leak.
It's all of ~20 ft-lbs of torque on those header bolts
Cool! Thanks for the info

but one more question... Where can I get the gaskets from? and for how much?

also... Do you think I'm losing a lot of HP with the leak?
get the gaskets from the dealership, or As for HP losses due to the leak, I dont think its anything huge....
