30 ft/lbs out of the FSM

But I wouldn't go more than 20... plus I've never used a torque wrench for it, I just do it by feel.

Don't forget the anti-seize compound.

you apply it to the threads to make it easier to remove the plugs next time so the threads won't seize up in the heads.

Well I guess that makes sense. I'd just never heard of it before. I wonder if the mechs at the dealer use that stuff?
