Spark plug torque specification issue

So, I called Ngk and asked them a bunch of questions. One being what is the torque specifications. Since we were talking about my 2002 Acura TLS I figured the rep would give me the correct specifications. I see in my manual and on here that the torque for these are only at 13ftlbs of torque or 156inlbs. Whereas the Ngk rep said it is 18-23ft lbs which is grossly higher than that of what Acura calls for. Since I figured it was their spark plug they would know what to set it . I torqued it to 18 ftlbs no antisieze. What should i do? Loosen them to proper Acura spec? Leave them alone?
