First check to see if the maker offers any guidance. If not, shoot for 95-105kpa right side tension, with the left being where it ends up when the wheel is dished correctly, (9ssually 50-65% of the right side tension). You have a lot of spoke there (36x 2.0mm) so there's no need to go for tension any higher than 100kpa or so, except to get the left side tension higher.
