unsure if it's the same on car plugs since I have yet to have to change mine, but there is a little washer looking thing in there on car plugs, just twist it til you hear it crack then give it 1/4 more turn and your torque is all good

what happens if you over tighten it? i never torqued any spark plugs, ever
If you over tighten it you can break the spark plug, but unless you are just pushing as hard as you can to tighten the plug up after its seated it won't happen.

another thing that can happen by overtightening is strippping the threads out of the head. i did it once to a chainsaw, i am never going to do it to my ninja.
