Jacfab spacer install

I just received my Jacfab spacers for my Impala. Wondering if there is a write up anywhere on here that I may be missing? Installation looks pretty straight forward. I'm curious as ot what I should be tightening the bolts down to? Also looking for any other information I may need prior to the install.

Well I tried to pop it off. It's on there pretty good. Thinking I'll wait and see if I can find a how to write up or video. Not in a rush to break my car lol

You removed all 6 bolts?? It's not hard to take off once all the bolts are out, comes off easily by hand. Use a new gasket when you put it back on.

Wasn't aware I'd nee a new gasket. I did take out all 6 bolts and it was still in there pretty secure. I better see about getting a new gasket before I start. Thanks!

Yeah once the gasket is compressed initially and heated by the engine it's not likely to fully seal again if the seal is broken, then you'll likely end up randomly throwing lean codes.
