    That's fine. I have them in my car as well running the same boost torqued to 90.
    My machine shop recommended anywhere from 88-100ft/lbs

    You don’t want to torque them much more than that without insert washers. With regular washers you’ll just push them into the head.

    For 6 bolt use arp200-8574
    There's a slightly smaller one that's better suited for the 11mm 7 bolt studs but I'm not sure of that part number.

    I’ve used arp and the tmz inserts. They both work.
