45nm i believe, James has just done his & i'm pretty sure thats what he said the Haynes manual says.
Make sure you don't mix the endcaps up as well, they are matched to the rods ;)

45nm is what is in the Haynes manual.  If you have uprated to an arp kit they come with there own settings.

Why, whats up with it??

If it's had a grind before you may need over sized shells if they are loose ;)

well, the engine had a knock so we fitted the new shells but there was still too much play in one, took it off again and the crank was all scored and worn. he's ordered a re-ground one and oversize shells so it should be back together soon.
