Default Trans Pan Torque

Hey Guys, asking for a dude on Allpar. He's replacing the trans fluid and filter on his PT Cruiser and is going to use a new pan with a drain plug. It came with a rubber gasket and he's wondering if anyone knows the proper torque with the rubber gasket. With regular pan and silicone it's 165 INCH pounds. Anyone know if this is the same with a rubber gasket?

I think I used the same setting when I replaced my ATF pan with the one with the drain plug too. The trick was to tighten one bolt on each side and alternate sides so that the pan tightens evenly. There's no pressure trying to blow the gasket out so the torque is only needed to hold the pan in place and hold the bolts in place while filled with ATF.

I did the pan with a drain plug on my most recent acquisition. Pan was better quality than expected and I found it very handy for a guy like me who drains/refills the fluid 2-3 times when I pick up any used car. No real need to replace the filter for this week-long routine, just the juice.
