Don't think a torque for the stud itself is applicable because there is no "seat" as such so it just needs to be all the way in. The nut defines the torque and will pull the stud out against its treads and sealant etc. You should torque up and then heat up the engine. Once cooled check and re-torque as necessary and it should then be good to go.
