Bout the same as a spark plug. Just enough, but not too much. lol. Really, its not much I think about 8ft-lb, but not 100%, I always just tighten till the little rubber spacers where the bolts go through start to expand. They have o-rings instead of regular gaskets, so they seal good.

According to my 99 service manual, it's a 2 pass sequence of 44 lb/in then 89 lb/in (5 Nm and 10 Nm). Like White said, it aint much.
