Spark plug torque

Can some one tell me what the correct torque is for plugs on an 02 3.0 liter?

I'm not too sure about the 3.0, on the 4.0 SOHC it's 7-15 ft. lbs., or 84-180 in. lbs. I imagine it would be similar on the 3.0.

Yep hes about right, recommended is 10-15 ft pounds...Always remember to clean around the plugs before removal so your not torquing against dirt!!!
