Nothing in the manual on it that I see. Acura shows 29 ft/lbs for steel plug in an aluminum pan, but some of their forum members think that's too much.

Educated guess after trying it on another bolt...20-25 ft/lbs.

I look forward to hearing the answer from some of the members that have access to the Ford service information.

EDIT: I PM'd another FF member who might know and asked if he could get the official spec.
