Default Proper Torque for 2001 GT Mustang PI Intake Manifold Bolts

Why do the manuals vary so much in recommended Torque spec for a 2001 GT Mustang PI Intake Manifold.
My Haynes Manual suggests 18 FT LBS
An Online Video I watched recommends 18.5
Other Specs Posted Online show from 15-22 FT LBS.

Which is the correct torque?

I am thinking go with the 18.5 and perhaps re-torque when hot after assembly to 20FT LBS...


Any suggestions?

Thanks...

Follow the sequence as noted in the above post. Just make your life simple and shoot for 18-ish. A lb or two either way from that number is of no consequence and there's no need to re-torque or anything later. Not sure which type of wrench you're using but I prefer a beam for this particular task.
