    Question Torque setting for X20XEV spark plugs??

    As thread title really, half way through changing plugs, and don't want to overtighten them.

    Have stupidly left haynes manual 100 miles away.

    Urgent reply greatly appreciated.

    Ta,

    Brilliant, thanks Ffoeg.

    I did get your response when you put it up, but as I had dirty hands my dad wouldn't let me touch his keyboard.

    haha.

    I have done my first ever oil change on a car - so proud of myself.
    Changed the oil filter, fuel filter, pollen filter, and took the throttle body and ICV off and cleaned them. Along with the new plugs it's like having a new car!!!! I love it again.

    For those who were at Westerham at the end of June, and remember the odd spluttering noise my car was making - it was resolved when new plugs were fitted, so reckon I had a slight misfire.

    Yeah it is Vx standard plugs.
    Oil&filter, plugs, fuel filter, pollen filter, and carb cleaner all for £60. With the 3 hours I took to do it all, has to be the best mods ever!!!

    Yeah I have done Veccy C and airbox mods, and have K&N - which I got at LMF at Chrimbo.

    Was saving for wheels, but now think I might get springs/dampers/remus centre pipe and wait for the wheels.

    Some dumb ass has fitted one of those things that tells you your speed on the way into Thames Valley Park. Obviously it has become an office competition to get the highest 'score'.
    I got 55 this morning, and the bo##ocking took about 20 minutes to arrive at my desk

    Ah well, still lovin the new lease of life my car has.
