Yup, the revised specs are 13 ft lbs. The old ones were 17. They changed it because the older gaskets were prone to cracking.
The newer design is better, Fel-pro is an excellent replacement. I continue to use 13ft lbs. without any issues.
Which side goes up... IIRC, one side has grooves/recessed or something, and the other is flat? I installed mine with the flatter side down.
