Outer Tie Rod End Torque

My wifes '06 G6 failed inspection becuase the outer tie rod end is shot. I plan on replacing it this weekend but I cant find the torque spec for the bottom nut (the one with the cotter pin). Does anyone know what it is?

From the 06 SM: Tighten the castle nut to 18 lb ft plus 90 degrees.
