Just do it in a manor that will bring the head down as eavenly as possible.
I guess you could do opposite corners moderately, and then do the other opposite corners, and just do inward diagonals and repeat a few times until you get your rated torques.

Just think about it for a few minutes and then just do it.... hey, try calling a dealership and see what they say, heh.

Thanks guys. I got a sequence from some other guys, its basically the sequence for the head cover. I did it and I still have a valve cover leak! The BavAuto guys are sending me a new gasket free of charge since it may be a defective one that I just put in. We'll see after I install the new one.

start from the center, hand tight then go outward. side to side, every other one, then go back to the middle and do the others in the same order. then torque the same pattern.
