      Or about 15 lb/ft.

      Not very tight in other words.

      I never torque spark plugs, just snug them in there... Dont go too tight or you'll rip those alluminum threads right outta the head.

      my rule of thumb is turn it until they are threaded all the way in (aka spin the socket wrench until you meet resistance) then 1/4 turn (aka 90deg).

      all the way until you hear crunching, then 2 more complete turns... per autozone employee handbook.

      Steek plugs..aluminum head...can be problems.....do torque the plugs, do use anitsieze on the threads...be carefull not to get any on the electrodes..it'll short em out...do remove plugs only when engine is cool enuff to touch and hold your hand on it...do wipe any crap off the sealing surface with a que tip. If you've ever experienced a crossthreaded plug..you'll do all this...its like a root canal..you do it once and its enuff!
