spark plug torque?

Its a 1997 5.4 liter expedition. I tried researching and the best i could find was 14 ft lbs with anti seeze and 28 without it. Something just doesn't seem right can someone please verify this for me?


Thanks

Gevans17 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
97 Expy 5.4L spark plug torque

My Ford service CD says 9-20Nm or 80-178lb/in Doesn't say anything about anti-seize.

My manual says:

Spark Plug

  1. Remove the coil on plugs. For additional information, refer to Ignition Coil—On Plug (COP) in this section.
  1. NOTE: Remove any foreign material from the spark plug wells with compressed air before removing the spark plugs.
    Remove the spark plugs.
