Maybe....maybe not. Recommended standard practice is under 2.0 inch at 90 degrees, use the factory torque. Anything longer than 2.0 inches at 90 degrees requires calculation to be done correctly. Remember, torque is a vector product.
Don't know if this is the case, but the 90 degree extension torque rule is often confused with a 90 degree offset. The extension does not require a calculation, but an offset may. The two terms are not one and the same.
Looking at the pic, it seems that the Empi crowfoot dimension would be more than 51 Mm, but admittedly by not very much.
And maybe it is just me, but it seems that not over-torquing that nut is relevant, wherever you may be.
