As far as tips go and take it how you want i suck at explaining stuff if i cant show you personally.. take your time with taking them out since they could brake and cause more headaches. When you put them back in. I just drop them down and then hand tighten them with the extension and socket so i dont cross thread them. As far as how much to torque them it calls for 14 ft lbs but i dont have a torque wrench that goes down that low so go till its tight. They have an anti torque measure on them so go till they can't and your done. Work on a cylinder at a time so you dont get mixed up on the plugs. Should take you maybe hour or two the first time.
Stuff to look out for is oil.. well alot of it. I had some on the back two passenger side and had to reseal the valve cover. If you run into anything that your not sure of just post it here and ill try to help. Best of luck!
