Subject: Head bolt torque? ('85 900T)

Hi all, I need an answer to this one as quickly as possible. What the proper torque for the head bolts on an '85 900T 16? The Haynes manual is just about useless for this because it gives tightening specs for the 8-valve engine and the "1988 on" 16-valve turbo engine. The tightening *sequence* though, seems to be the same for '85 and '88 (or at least the manual doesn't specify "1988 on") so would the torque be the same for '88 and '85 also? I know someone's got to know this; thanks so very much in advance. Tom R. "Long life to this tree, and may it prosper from this auspicious day.
