Question do you know how much to torque your turbo pcv valve to ?

it's a NPT style but plastic. mine was always half-way on . i realized that it took 70 in-lb which is enough to fully seat the shoulder of the nut to the valve cover. use my 23mm 1/2 drive to 3/8 to 1/4 adapters to finally use my 1/4 torque wrench. i believe most would be scared to tighten down the pcv valve since it's plastic threads and don't want to break it.
