The Denso plugs I used didn't even have a torque spec. Instructions said turn 1/4-1/2 turn past initial contact.

No torquing required at all. Maybe the anti seize keeps my threads clean..

This is just how I been doing it for the last 33 years. You can do it however you see it fit for you. No problemo :-)

1/2 turn past initial contact would crash the crush washer to seal it well..

I believe the torque spec is either 13 or 14 foot pounds, though I would do some research first. I think I saw that in the FSM.

Steel threads into aluminum mostly are always less the 15ft pounds. Just like the valve pan gasket torquing.

So what I'm hearing is take out all the plugs I just installed, put a dab of anti-seize on them, and torque them to 11 ft-lbs.

Nope. You do as your want. We just say what you we did. I would do as you wish..If they are in and snug your good.

You certainly can, although I don't believe it to be absolutely necessary. Nor have I ever applied anti seize to mine before. Just be careful when torquing the plugs and you should be just fine.

It has aluminum heads.

Well I ran an errand, got home, let it sit for an hour and tried to take it out. Still only turned 1-2 rotations and then froze up again. Going to get some liquid wrench on it tonight and let it sit overnight.
