NGK(better) or Denso
Don't have part # right now.
Heat range depends on what you've done to your car.

Talk to Robert (the admin) He was going to run some special deals on bulk buying the NGK's in one range colder.

You're not supposed to touch the NGK Iridiums' gap, right? Jeremy told me that I just want to stick them in as they come, because if you try to gap them, it'll break the iridim electrode.

no u cant gap iridium plugs. but they're a waste of money in my opinion anyways, i had em on my car for a while. ran like a bag of poop once the temp dropped below about 40 degrees.
copper plugs give best bang for buck, more conductive than pretty much anything just u gotta replace em more often. I'm replacing mine at next oil change, every 6months i throw a new set of NGK's in. dont hvae the part # handy tho.

Im pretty sure you can gap them but you have to be really careful. I'd just get the copper ones though, they work better but dont last as long.

How much boost are you running ?
What was the heat range of the iridiums you put in ?
You really only need a colder plug if you are
running BOOST. :-)

Well there you go ! If the plugs or the temp was too cold,
the car will run like poop. :-)

The THIN Iridium tips foul easier than the wider copper.
Plus the Cold start injector dumps a lot of fuel to
richen the mixture on cold days. U Might need a
Hotter plug in COLD days ?

I 2nd that. Cheap copper work better IMHO, and
you can switch them for summer, winter... :-)

> just u gotta replace em more often.

Yah, that can be a PITA.

Sure seems that way sometimes LOL! Although last winter my house looked like this for a week, not too common for Portland:

Anyway, I agree that copper seems to be the best although I'm still using platinum on mine, until I use up the sets I had on hand. And, yes, one heat range colder.
