Spark Plugs

I'm thinking about replacing the spark plugs in my 5th gen prelude if it means better fuel economy and performance. Probably would use ngk v power or g power or iridium. Someone tell me which to use, and if it would even be worth it to replace them. I've looked at forums online regarding this and all I can find are people talking about the conductivity and life of spark plugs, and no REAL difference in fuel economy or performance. Which makes me think the 4-8 dollars I would spend on the spark plugs would get me exactly what I paid for, not ****. If I'm wrong, please let me know.

Always NGK in Honda engines, in my honest opinion. I have Iridium IX in mine, and the fuel economy is fairly very good. car has 101k miles on it as well.

Re: Spark Plugs

i've tried all 3 of those from NGK. really, there is no noticeable difference. but anything from NGK is gonna be your best bet.
