overtorqued diff. plug, replace?

Hi there everybody,
I am going to change the diff. fluid to synthetic Mobil 1.
The previous mechanic torqued the fill plug to about 130 ftlbs.
By the time I had it loosened , the fluid was cold and I will drive it after lunch. Should I replace that (alu ?) plug or will it be ok with some blue loctite on the threads and torqued to now only 37 ftlbs?
Thanks for your advice.
