Typo in 101 Projects for Your Boxster?

Trying to finish up a project here and have been using both 101 Projects for Your Boxster and the Bentley manual. I was confused by a torque value in 101 Projects, on page 202, where it says:
The torque specification for the tie rod end to the wheel bearing carrier is 37 ft-lb (50 Nm).
In the chapter on Front Suspension, Bentley has a torque table at the end of the chapter in which one of the entries says:
Tie rod/control arm to wheel bearing carrier (ball joint, M12): 75 Nm (56 ft-lb)
I don't totally understand Bentley's description (is the tie rod connection considered to be another part of the control arm??), but both are talking about the same connection, right? Ie, the nut right in the middle of the pic:

I'm kinda new at this so I may be misreading one or the other, but I wanted to figure it out one way or the other. (I've already emailed Wayne at Pelican Parts with the same question.)

Correct value is 75 Nm or 56 ft lb (OEM service manual)
