Head Bolt Torque Specs

I seem to be having a hard time finding the torque specs for the head bolts on my 2004 Taurus with a 3.0 Vulcan. I found them for the earlier Taurus's, but not for the 2004. Not sure if it's a big secret or they haven't changed any and they don't tell you that. Does anybody have that info? It would be greatly appreciated. I have a cracked head on one, which is kind of rare I believe.

Here it is:
Cylinder Head

Stage 2: Loosen the bolts one full turn.

Stage 3: Tighten to 30 Nm (22 ft. lbs.).

Stage 4: Rotate each bolt 90 degrees.

Stage 5: Rotate each bolt an additional 90 degrees.

WARNING!!! DO NOT USE TORQUE WRENCH TO DO 90* STEPS!!! USE A BREAKER BAR OR RATCHET
