Not sure how much info you don't have (like clearances, spec for rods, mains, balance shafts, shims, etc) but here is the info... also you can grab the FSM - follow my sig and the instructions in the first post.... Pn 1731–1E–02C PS - looks like your gonna need a degree wheel. And I didn't find it in bold print but it has tell tale signs of torque to yeild bolts which are almost always discarded and never reused.

Connecting Rod Cap Assembly Note
Caution
• When assembling the connecting rod caps, align the broken, rough faces of the connecting rods and connecting rod caps.
1. Tighten the connecting rod bolts in two steps.
Tightening torque:
(1) 26—32 N·m {2.7—3.2 kgf·m, 19.2—23.6 ft·lbf}
(2) 80°—100°


Main Bearing Caps Assembly Note
1. Install the main bearing caps in the order indicated in the figure.
Tightening torque:
(1) 44—46 N·m {4.5—4.6 kgf·m, 32.5—33.9 ft·lbf}
(2) 175°—185°


Cylinder Head Bolt Assembly Note
1. Tighten the cylinder head bolts in the order indicated in the figure in six steps.
(1) Tighten to 5.0 N·m {51 kgf·cm, 44.3 in·lbf}.
(2) Tighten to 13— 17 N·m {1.4 —1.7 kgf·m, 9.6—12.5 ft·lbf}.
(3) Tighten to 44— 46 N·m {4.5 —4.6 kgf·m, 32.5—33.9 ft·lbf}.
(4) Tighten 88°—92°.
(5) Tighten 88°—92°.

Camshaft Assembly Note
1. Install the camshaft with No.1 cylinder aligned with TDC position.
2. Tighten the camshaft cap bolt using the following two steps.
(1) Tighten to 5.0—9.0 N·m {51.0—91.7 kgf·cm, 44.3—79.5 in·lbf}.
(2) Tighten to 14.0—17.0 N·m {1.5—1.7 kgf·m, 10.4—12.5 ft·lbf}.

CORRECTION: bolts can be used if they meet spec;

BOLT INSPECTION
1. Measure the length of each bolt.
• Replace any that exceeds maximum length.

Length L (from inside shoulder to bolts end)

Bolt Standard (mm) {in} // Maximum (mm) {in}
Cylinder head bolt 149.0—150 // {5.86—5.90} 150.5 {5.92}
Connecting rod bolt 44.7—45.3 // {1.75—1.78} 46.0 {1.81}
Main bearing cap bolt 110.0—110.6 // {4.33—4.35} 111.3 {4.38}
