Default Torque Specifications

Does anyone know where I can track down a table with Torque Specifications (Wheel nuts, spark plugs, oil drain plug, etc) for my 2004 WRX? I breezed through the manual last night and was disappointed to find no real technical info related to this...maybe I missed it though, who knows. If you're at the "Rotate Tires" section of the book it simply says to tighten the wheel nuts to "the specified torque"...pretty useless.
Anyway, I've searched through a number of forums, but have been unable to find a good summary, just a few random postings, none of which give a good summary or source. I know there is a Subaru Technical Information System website that's supposed to have this kinda stuff listed, but you have to pay a ****-ton of money to get a subscription to even view the .pdf files.
Thanks in advance guys.

You can get the complete WRX factory manual with all specs by going to http://techinfo.subaru.com.

Pay the $19.95 for three days viewing and start downloading like a madman. Actually, doesn't take that long to download the whole thing if you use 3-4 browser screens at a time. Set one to downloading and use another to go on to the next chapter on the list, then another, etc.

There might be a torque spec sheet somewhere on the net if that's all you want. You might try doing a google.com search.

Wheel torque is 58-72 ft-lbs. (I use 67 ft-lbs.)

Drain plug is 33 ft-lbs.

Spark plugs are 15.19 ft-lbs.

These figures are for 02 WRX, but I don't think anything has changed for 04.
