10NM or 7.3 ft/lbs

It is such a small torque spec that, even with a torque wrench, some bolts were still too loose when re-using the pan bolts. So be careful and follow the pattern on the instructions.

I tightened it test drove the car, found leaks, re-tightened, and started the motor again, and found 1 more leak, then it was good to go.

New bolts could save a little time since they will bite with the right torque spec on the first try since they are new.

Have fun!
