The reality is torque is a pi$$ poor indirect measure of stress - e.g. clamping force. That is why the industry has a bunch of alternative and more accurate measures/indicators for applications where it is important. The only thing torque is good for in this application is getting enough stress to prevent the bolts from loosening. Simpler solution = "wrist tight" on the head of a 1/2" socket wrench and a good high strength thread locker.
