Specific Sparkplug info needed please

Hi guys

Long story short, I've decided to upgrade my plugs and plug wires. Probably NGk IX Iridiums as they appear to be whats reccommended, still not sure about the wires.

My question is, I've seen different model codes for the same plug and need to clarify the exact model/serial number for my car. Ditto for the wires too.

Car Spec:

5th Gen Lude "Ls" 2.0l
Chassis: BB9
Engine: F20A4
Unmodified

Thanks in advance

To my knowledge there is no 5th Gen 2.0L that comes stock

Your running a motor that I am not familiar with

Engine: F20A4

Is that a civic motor? or from an Acura?

Good choice NGK's thats all I run in my cars and my motorcycles. I guess your question is do you want to run a hotter plug? Is that what you are asking?

Here is the info, I'll also post the info about the engine:

F20A

This engine series was used in the Honda Accords in Japan and Europe. The DOHC F20A was also derived from this engine (see below).

Specifications

* Bore × Stroke: 85.0 × 88.0 mm
* Displacement: 1997 cc
* Valve Configuration: SOHC, 16 valves
* Max output : F20A2 and F20A4 136 PS @ 5400 rpm (PGM-Fi), 110 PS @ 6000 rpm (PGM-carb)
* Max output : F20A7 147 PS @ 5600 rpm (PGM-Fi)
* Max torque : F20A2 and F20A4 18.5 kg m @ 4300 rpm (PGM-Fi), 16.1 kg m @ 3800 rpm (PGM-carb)
* Max torque : F20A7 19.3 kg m @ 4400 rpm (PGM-Fi)
* Fuel consumption (Japan Combined Cycle) : 9.6 km/l (PGM-Fi), 9.8 km/l (PGM-carb)

Maybe I'll check out a Honda Accord forum if the engine would be more common. Reply to Rob: I guess I'm after increased reliability and mpg, then maybe better response or other benefits.

Sure feel free to talk with me about anything, you guys have far more knowledge than me and it'll be a great help if you can suggest a few things.

yeah no problem, I would like to help you find your plugs. I would say if you want increased reliability and mpg, then maybe better response or other benefits. You might go with running a hotter plug. I will look into which NGK plug it is that you are looking for. Does your car seem to run rich or lean? Mine seems to burn a little rich so I may run a hotter plug in mine as well.

Right, maybe after the warrenty has run out I'll install the following:

NGK IX Irids
NKG Wires
MSD Rotor
MSD Dist Cap

What do you guys think of the combination? Any recommendations?
