Yes, 28 ft/lbs can be managed with even a small (6 inch) 1/4" drive... It's tough, but can be done. However unless you have a torque wrench, and if I had to GUESS, most people will overtorque everything because they think its a lot. The few things people tend to undertorque is the crank pulley bolt, Cam gear bolt, and axel nut.
Do yourself a favor and buy a torque wrench... yeah they might be stupid exhaust bolts right now, but what about when you finally do your TGV's, or clutch, or timing belt? there are more precise bolts that WILL snap if overtorqued... ask me how I know.
( For the record, I set the torque wrench properly (7 lbs) for the small intake to TGV bolts and my friend picked it up and set it to 18 lbs to get the longer TGV to block bolts. I didn't realize he did this and I snapped one off. )
