Default Socket wrench size for V6 oil filter cap?

I want to get a socket wrench to close the oil filter cap with the specified torque. Does anyone know the size?

1-1/8 is the size socket you need. Don't know the TQ.

I just went to Pep Boys and tried out different sizes. The closest one was 1 1/16 for $5.99.
