    Discussed this topic at length with my son and his co-workers (AP licensed jet Mechanics). Often recommended not to use anti-seize as overtorque and or backing out is an issue on low torque applications. They safety wire many fasteners but that is a different story. Many fasteners get a coatig of Milk of Magnesia as an anti-seize. Don't shoot the messenger here, google it for yourself. It is a thing and commonly used on igniters inside of jet engines. Low torque high heat application. There is even a part number for it if no Walgreens around!
    Either way I will use a good paste and be aware of torque settings or degrees from seated. I still think there is benefit 100K or 5 years later.

    I haven't seen that benefit. Just my experience.

    Just an assurance that a plug will not become "stuck" or corroded in the head, it happens. It won't happen if treated. It will strip if the operator is not smarter than the tool.

    I'm an anti-seize person myself. It has saved me so many times years down the road.
