Need some clutch/Flywheel help

Ok, I'm changing the clutch, flywheel, clutch release arm, etc, and I must remove the transmission. Ok, easy enough. Not really. But, I get the idea... I've done the research already:

http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=514381 (gotcha, don't send me to this link, I already know it, doesn't tell me what I need to know)

What I need to know is this: Torque specs. When I put the trans back on, what should I torque the bolts to? Should I use Loctite? Also, the flywheel. I'm replacing the clutch/flywheel with that Gripforce F1 Clutch kit and Flywheel and nothing I find comes with torque specs. Is there a website, a link, any tech out there could possibly help me out with info on what I should torque down the flywheel, clutch and trans to? Also, can I Loctite everything down? Or is that a bad idea? Also, on one of the bolts when I was taking it off... a piece of the block chipped off... Also, since I have the Gripforce lightened Flywheel, will the torque specs for the flywheel be different from OEM? Just curious. Thanks in advanced, fellas.
