Lug nut torque

So, stupid question, but what is the torque spec for lug nuts on the svt (I tried the search tool and owners manual with no luck)? The tire shop used to write torqued to 90 ft lbs on my receipt but I have no idea if that was correct or not.

I can attest to that...... if you have em on the highest setting and you're putting it on, there's a possibility it might go on crooked and strip the snot out of your threads..... you can use one, just go on the lowest or second lowest setting.... just an FYI.
