TPI intake manifold toque sequence

anyone know the torque sequence for installing a sbc lower intake manifold for my superam? also, no RTV on the gaskets right? For some reason I thought you should put a dab around the water ports. thanks.

I put rtv around the ports and at the corners where the block, heads, and intake all meet. You can put it on dry, it'll save you about 45 seconds. But pulling the SR and re-doing it will take a little longer.

It's up to you. I don't know for sure about the tq sequence, but I just start from the inside and work my way out.
