Question 3v tune up

I plan to do new plugs at 100k and other maintenance while i'm there. What is the Torque for the plugs? I know on the 2v I used 13 with antiseize. Should I continue to use antiseize on the 3v?

Late 08 cars 25lbs ft

Jesus 25lb ft. Mine has the brown boots so I'm assuming mine is late 2008?

3v tune up

Your sticker in the driver's door jam has a MM/YY production date.
I'd stick with the 9lbs on both.

Pick your poison.

I wouldn't. I've seen some not ground properly because of it.

You may already know this, but before you remove the spark plugs from the S197, make sure you soak them overnight in PB Blaster or another quality penetrating lubricant. The plugs are a 2-piece design that breaks off in the block. Be prepared to buy the Lisle tool to extract broken plugs, especially if you are changing them for the first time at 100K miles. I can provide more information about this if you want.

His is the later 08 with the brown coil pack boots so they are the 1 piece spark plug design. He is one of the lucky ones!😃
