When I got my head back I got it back with a note that the rocker assembly still needed to be torqued. I found the spec in the FSM, but I didnt see a tightening sequence. I'm guessing it doesnt have one, but I wanted to check before wrenching on it.

Each cam cap is pretty much independent of one another, although the rocker shafts sorta control it some as you install.   Just thread them down as evenly as you can until snug tight.   As far as torque sequence, torque both bolts on each cap and move to the next one, doesn't matter the order.
