- Look up what torque necessary to strip the cylinder head threads.
Go to junk yard and play with spark plug and threads, it takes way beyond 100 ft*lb to cause any damage.

- Google that topic (what torque can cause cylinder head damage).

- I have been using anti-seize for 20 years using the same torque, zero issues.
If you are worried, you can reduce the torque a bit, let's say the book states 18 ft*lb, then with antiseize, reduce it to 16 ft*lb or something like that.
