Oil Pan Drain Plug Torque?

What's the torque setting for the oil pan drain plug on the 3.6R? I searched a ton of threads yesterday, but couldn't find it. Incidentally, I was performing the first oil change yesterday (3798 miles). I've changed a ton of oil for the cars/motorcycles/toys we own without incident, but wanted to use the appropriate torque setting for once.

From FSM, page LU(H6DO)-9

5) Tighten the engine oil drain plug after draining
engine oil.
Use a new drain plug gasket.
Tightening torque:
44 Nm (4.5 kgf-m, 32.5 ft-lb)
