Honestly, torquing your plugs isn't entirely necessary if you don't have a torque wrench, but it is always recommended by the manufacturer. I would put some anti-seize lubricant or copper grease on the threads first but me sure not to get it on the electrodes.
Also, a top tip- use a small screwdriver and a two inch piece of 1/4 inch hose on it. Them put the end of your plug on there, and then you can start them in by hand without the risk of cross-threading. And then just tighten them up snugly and don't be too harsh- you can break the porclain end of the plug if you get it too tight.
Have fun! It's a simple enough job that is fun and cheap to do, so don't take those for granted! I am just now finishing up my tranny rebuild, so I wish all jobs were as simple as this.......
