7 ft lbs IIRC. It is listed in Haynes manuals, or by searching on Google.

Meh, you do not necessarily need one. Just make them a little snug and tighten them in the proper sequence and you shouldn't have a problem. If you plan on continually doing work to your car, a torque wrench would be a good idea.
