Yes it's the same as stock. For the Elise it's 77 lbf/ft, see page 155 in the owner's manual. Retorque after a bit too, such as 25 miles, between track runs and so forth until things stabilize if you really want to nail it and be safe.
Thanks Stan.....gee, I didn't see any reason to read the book....maybe it is time to scan the manual in case I missed something.
