Nobody know the torque spec for the oil pan

I did this job over the weekend, replacing both filters and fluid. Easily one of the most frustrating and disgusting jobs I've ever done on a car. There was a lot that I had to figure out along the way since there's not a really clear-cut DIY, but if I had to do it all over it wouldn't be such a big deal knowing what I now know.

If you want to try it I'm happy to answer any questions.

EDIT: In this post I originally shared my concerns that I had not been able to get a complete fill, but my mechanic verified that the system was full. Part of my confusion was due to measuring the drained fluid in quarts and measuring the new fluid in liters.

In the end, though, I'm not sure I'd recommend this as a DIY job because I simply wasn't able to add enough fluid. I drained about 5.25 quarts of fluid (plus whatever dripped all over my garage floor and into my hair and eyes while the pan was removed), and I wasn't able to add more than 4.5 quarts back in. I added over 3 quarts with the first fill, then did the 2000rpm for 1 minute trick and was able to add an additional quart plus. Did 2k for 1m another time and wasn't really able to add any more. Given that I'm hitting the track in two weeks, I'm not comfortable running around 3/4 qt low. So I'm taking it to my mechanic to hook it up to the computer, run the pump and top it off.

If you still want to try it I'm happy to answer any questions, but I'm disappointed with how this one turned out.
Did you used ISTA/D (Rheingold) software operation to add an additional fluid?
If not, you need to do it in anyway.

No, I used the DIY method described in the #1 post on this thread. My mechanic verified that it was a complete fill, so my fears are assuaged.
