Specs call for 38-41 lb/ft. I usually don't even use a torque wrench, all I do is use a 1/2" ratchet and zig-zag back and forth between the bolts applying a small amount of pressure equally on each till it's nice and tight.
Since you have the heads off you can lap the valves. With the cam and springs removed it only takes less than 5 min. per valve using the lapping paste and a cordless drill (spinning slowly back and forth).
