What has not been mentioned in this discussion is wrench calibration. Honestly how often do we bring our torque wrench in to an established weights and measurement agency and have it calibrated? I venture to say, never. So the argument is not only whether or not torque to spec, clean, dry, lubed or dirty, but also adding in whether the tool you are using is accurate.
So it you need 120 ftlbs are you really getting it? or are you getting 126 or 114? (+/- 5%) ?
