cam housing oil line plug torque? 25ft-lb?

Tried to search but came up empty. Wayne's book shows torque specs for the
oil line adapter and oil line plug in the cam housings to be 25.8 ft-lbs. Is that
right? It seems high given the housing is Al and threads are fine and not deep.
Thanks

That's what the spec state, I thought it was quite high also. I just tightened it till it felt tight, some were around 15 to 18 lbs. I'd be interested in what the shops think about this.

Thanks, I don't want to have a leak, but even more than that I don't want to hurt the threads.
