Have you checked your manual? My 02V70XC provides the torque information...don't have it with me though.

If I recall correctly that works out to hand tight and then about a quarter turn....just enough to compress the aluminum piece that sits up above the ridges of the threads.

Totally agree.

I have never used a torque wrench on spark plugs.
