Torque Spec Question

Good Day All;

A quick question about torque specs.

I am replacing my oil pan because it is dented. I do not want to over-tighten the bolts, or squeeze the gasket too hard.

What is the recommended ft/lbs or NM torque spec for the pan fasteners. I want to say 8nm or around 5.75 ft/lbs. This is an inference based on a search in the forums on this site. This is what I believe to be the ratio for the Transmission pan, so do you think I can apply it to the Oil pan too?

Any advise or suggestion would be welcomed.
