Here's what my haynes manual says (I would also be interested in what the FSM says too if anyone has it...):

1) Tighten to 37 ft-lbs in special sequence pattern starting from the center going to the outside
2) Loosen half a turn in reverse pattern
3) Tighten to 37 ft-lbs in forward pattern
4) Tighten 1/4 turn in forward pattern
5) Tighten 1/4 turn in forward pattern

Doesn't really give a final torque but 44 seems ball parkish.

[edit - changed word "star", not really a star pattern, but starting from the center and moving out pattern]
