Can anyone help me out?

Looking for torque specs for the oil drain plug & the oil filter cover on a 2008 cobalt ls!

Thanks

Tighten the drain plug until it is finger tight and snug, then a quarter of a wrench turn.

Filter cap, run it down with a wrench until tight, then put a little extra twist on it.

My turbo lag is your courtesy head start.
