Default Spark Plug Torque specs

So I tend to be a stickler for the minor details... is there a specific torque setting for the plugs? I am going to change mine out, but I would hope someone can quote me the torque settings out of a Service manual. I know most people say tighten it to what you feel is right, but I don't really like the vagueness of that. Hand tight can depend on what size rachet or breaker bar I use.

Thanks in advance for whomever can help!

When I owned my mx-6 I had to replace my spark plugs. The person who replaced them before way overtorqued them, and I got lucky they didn't seize in the manifold. That would have been no fun. If you don't have a torque wrench, Just remember they should be NOT OVERTIGHTENED!

Sup Doc, you changing the plugs to an upgrade? Or just the OEM replacements? Always good to get knowledge from the service manuals. :D
