Does the plug manufacturer specify a torque value? If so, is it the same as Honda's (16 lb-ft)?One area that's never been clarified (to the best of my recollection) is spark plugs. Anti-seize or not? The spark plug mfg says there's a special coating on the plugs and not to use AS. Honda says to use AS on spark plugs and provides the torque value.
I conclude that a small amount of AS should be used on spark plugs since Honda specifies the torque value and also specifies to use AS. That seems a logical conclusion to me.
EDIT: According to a company who sells NGK spark plugs, the torque specs are 10.8-14.5 lb-ft and they feature a "trivalent metal plating [which] provides superior anti-corrosion and anti-seizing properties". Curiously, I can't find any information on this plug directly from NGK.
