torque from center bolts in a cross pattern to the bolts on the ends to 55-60 FT LBs.

However, If you are getting pressure into the coolant and running hot, it is suggestive of a headgasket fire ring that is damaged, broken and cylinder pressures are flowing into coolant. My gut says it is unlikely retorqueing will correct it. Headgasket is @ $45, glycol replacement and new oil less than $30.

Good luck.
