    Santa Fe '03 2.7 Litre motor, to get to the back plugs must remove the
    intake plenum. I got a new gasket, but wonder whether there is a
    recommeneded tightening pattern for the 5 bolts to minimize warping.... and
    what the torque specs might be. I could not find anything about the plenum
    on the hma website searching for plenum, tune up, spark plug, and intake.

    The manual doesn't show a torque sequence, but it does list the torque at
    11-14 ft.-lb. In general, you want to start in the center and work
    outward when tightening the bolts/nuts.

    Once you've entered the vehicle model and year in the service information
    section, select the shop tab, Engine Mechanical, Intake and Exhaust
    System, Intake Manifold, and the top INSTALLATION link. Although the
    information is sparse, it does have some pictures and the torque
    information at the top of the page.

    Generally, a specific sequence isn't required for bolt torque values
    this low as the part distortion is pretty small and not sufficient to
    cause permanent part deformation.
