Icon6 Spark plugs OEM vs NGK

I'm replacing my plugs and wires and just want to know if I should go with oem or NGKs double platinum plugs and wires. What's the better outcome?

Re: Spark plugs OEM vs NGK

NGK is an OEM plug and wire supplier -- look in the owner's manual, and you'll find both NGK and Denso plugs listed. The platinum-tipped plugs just extend the change interval -- the tips don't erode as quickly. So is up to you.

NGK Iridium IX plugs are pretty good. I had them in my H.

Re: Spark plugs OEM vs NGK

I replaced the last set with NKG then found an old set of Bosch Platinum+4 plugs that I had bought maybe 5 years ago for a Toyota or Mazda minivan. Granted the NKG was the stock plug but I did notice a difference with the +4 plugs. Probably just the placebo affect of some new toy combined with the joy of finding the "lost plugs of yore" but I thought they performed well. I'm going to pull them and check them later in the week see how dirty they are, anything that is new and clean when it is a plug. I'm sure it was all about clean contacts.

I ordered the NGK Wire set and Double Platinum plugs. Going to also do an oil change when I install them. Any oil brand recommended?

Re: Spark plugs OEM vs NGK

Now that is a whoooooole nuther can of worms.

How many miles you got?, climate and a bunch of other stuff can dictate the 'proper' answer to which oil is best for your car. Or you can just rest assured that oil made today is good stuff, regardless of brand or chemical makeup.
5w30.

I use this brand, joe over there uses that brand, sam uses synthetic, fred uses blend. The debate could go on forever.
Pick a brand and stick with it. Stock up on said brand when it's on sale.
Filters? Oh geez... another debate. But some are better than others. Pure one and K&N are the choice of many a pz member.

Re: Spark plugs OEM vs NGK

I'm using Denso "Irridium Power".
Love 'em. Great MPG. Much better with the H22A, than I got with the H22A4 and other plugs.
Use the same plugs in my LS1 (that's a V-8, folks). Great MPG there, too.
