I'm planning to replace my original (came from the factory) iridiums with the KHTT16 (not iridiums) but don't have a torque wrench.
Which one from the table below is the right ratchet torque (number of turns)?

Thanks!

well, I've never seen anyone using a torque wrench on spark plugs :-)
just start inserting the plug finger tight so that you won't crossthread the hole, tighten it until it the gasket hits the head and stops, then take the wrench and follow the instructions on the plug's box (usually: 1/2 turn with a gasket-type plug, or 1/8 turn if the plug is used - gasket already squeezed).

best,

RL

OK, so just as the denso link says:

Insert and tighten by hand until it stops and then give it a 2/3 turn with a wrench. That's great, thanks.

Coil bolts 8NM/6Lbft
Plugs 25NM/18Lbft

I keep a laminated sheet in the boot with what I call everyday settings and these are what I tighten to. I am guessing they must have come from a Haynes at some point.

I find these cars so easy and cheap to service that I simply do a full service when the clocks go forward so I remember the date. In my case about 4 or 5k. I know somebody will say that it is unnecessary but I have no problem with that.

Who cares what others say it’s your car, service it whenever you like.
I change the oil and filter every year, and full service every 2. Very low mileage, check the car often though.
