Default Torque specs 5.3 Reassembly/Install

As the last few parts for my 4.3 to 5.3 swap trickle in this week I thought I'd try to gather some torquing info for various parts if anyone knows or knows of a place to get this information. Basically I'm needing torque specs (if they even exist) for the following

exh. manifold bolts
intake manifold bolts
throttle body to manifold
motor mount register bolts
motor mounts (to engine and to registers)
tranny to engine
flexplate to torque converter
starter bolts
valve covers (doubt exists but figured I'd ask anyways)
coil pack bracket to valve covers

Thanks all.

A good source for this information is a Haynes manual for the 1999 thru 2005 Silverado/Sierra

Not being a smart ***. Do you have common sense?? If you do all these can be done with out needing a tq spec

exh. manifold bolts
intake manifold bolts big part here is making sure they are all about the same
throttle body to manifold
motor mount register bolts
motor mounts (to engine and to registers)
tranny to engine
starter bolts
valve covers (doubt exists but figured I'd ask anyways)
coil pack bracket to valve covers

flexplate to torque converter this is 46ft lbs.. here is the place to look if you really want to tq them..

Yes, I find I typically have good common sense...and normally I do everything by feel anyways, but I'm typically not placing a $3K motor in my daily driver either, so I'm taking a few extra precautions to make sure its done right, last thing I need is something f**ked up (common sense???). Thanks for the link tho...much obliged.

Thanks fellas, guess I'm a little over-particular, just a peace of mind thing. I figured they did exist, just don't know how necessary some are, but what can it hurt. thanks again to all tho.
