    Need some guidance..
    My car: 1990 Porsche 944 S2

    just changed my car’s spark plugs with NGK Iridiums.. wires seemed ok so didn’t change them..
    It was my first time using a torque wrench. I did set it to 20 ft lbs but stopped before I heard the click sound as it felt tight enough and I didn’t want to mess up the threads..

    after starting it, I am hearing a ticking/spark sound..

    i bought the plugs that matched my car from Pelican parts. I didn’t check the gap before installing.. assumed that they were gapped correctly.

    i didn’t torque them to 20 ft lbs as I was scared of messing up my threads.. they are in pretty tight..

    I didn’t change the existing wires (Beru). Should I have changed the wires that would work with NGK plugs?

    i checked the car in the dark while running and I didn’t see any arcs..

    this was my first time doing a DIY change.. wonder what mistake/s I made..
