Drain plug torque

No luck searching. Can anyone tell me the torque specs for the oil drain plug on my 2013 ZL1? Also is there a torque spec for the oil filter?

Thats awesome that you are that particular. I waxed the underneath side of my car, but I just tightened those things like I would have on any other car. I'll torque mine next oil change.

My problem is usually tightening to tight so I like to know the torque specs.
