  11mm bolts get a three step torque.  37, 52, 66 but I usually go a 
little closer to 70 (ft/lbs).  Warm it up then recheck at 66 (or your 
slightly higher number) then drive 600 miles and recheck again.
  12mm (stretch) bolts get 30, 44 then 180 degrees, warm up an 
90 degrees, 600 miles and 90 degrees more.
