Anybody know what the intake manifold (upper and lower) torque specs are on a 4.0L SOHC?

Ford does not specify a sequence for either upper or lower intake manifolds, but it is recommended that you start tightening in the middle and work your way out to the ends. Repeat the tightening sequence several times until the bolts will no longer turn at the specified torque.
Install the lower intake manifold. Torque the bolts to 10 ft. lbs. (13 Nm) for 2000, and 13 ft. lbs. (18 Nm) for 2001.
Position the upper manifold on the lower manifold.
Install or connect the following:
Attach both VMV hoses to the manifold Upper manifold attaching bolts. Torque the bolts to 62 inch lbs. (7 Nm).

What about 2002? Thanks purevenom1 but this is another reason why I try to stay away from Autozone. They are just too unreliable for me.
NP. That was for an 02 Explorer Sport. Pretty much the same that is in my Haynes manual that stops in 01.
I know this is an old thread but been trying to find the torque specs., on my 2010 4.0L sohc lower intake manifold bolts found the upper torque but can't find anything specific covering the 2010 4.0L, Anybody know where to find them or know off the top of their head?
