Torque specs on pan aren't really necessary. First put all screws in place to get the pan properly located, (make sure you have put a decent dab of rtv sealant at the corners of the end seals before you put the pan up) Run each screw up to where it begins tightening (but no further) Start with either side center, then the opposite side, then work in an X pattern towards both ends, using enough force to make the bolts secure, but not so they are crushing the gasket. The larger bolts at the corners (where you put the sealant) can be tightened a bit more than the small ones. Let it sit about an hour, then just go over it again. Use a 1/4 drive short ratchet to avoid overtightening, after runing check for any seepage. You can turn those screws a bit tighter to take up for any pan warpage.
Been building engines for a long time and aside from the first time, I never used a torque wrench (specs are in inch pounds, usually 12-15...Ive found that unless you have a brand new pan that is absolutely straight and flat, using those specs often produces leaks.
