Actual torque I don't know off the top of my head, but just tighter than snug. You are not holding anything together, just holding the plug in. Probably like 15 pound feet.

I'm an auto mechanic, I don't think I have ever torqued a drain plug tho.. just keep in mind all you need to do is keep the plug from getting loose don't go all manly on it or you will probably just wreck the threads on the bolt, but you could strip out the pan and have to helicoil it.
