the spark plugs, "head damage".

2. What is the tourq spec.
3. Should antisieze be used.

I just got done changing my plugs. The five on the drivers side were a really easy. The first three on the drivers side were fairly easy, number four a little difficult. But the last one on passenger side was a bear! Took about an hour and a half to do the first 8 the other two took an hour and a half more. Good luck, John.
