The Permatex RTV Gasket instructions are posted on the package and Permatex's website.

Basically cure time is at least 2h.
Best is to cure overnight per Permatex.

I have a basic rule re Permatex RTV: as long as it does not "stick" to my finger, it is probably OK to torque the bolts.
But again, best is to wait some 2-3h before torquing the bolts:
