According to the Ford factory shop manual.

The Cylinder hed bolt are tightened in three progressive steps.
Torque all the bolts in sequence starting from the middle two bolts, and then working your way to the outter bolts to 50ft-lbs, then to 60 ft-lbs, then to specification. Specification in the book is 65-70 ft-lbs.

I wouldn't use anything other than the ARP bolts myself. Expensive but ...............damn well worth it!
