    Installed this myself on my 2001 Nissan Sentra SE 2.0. The set does not come with anti-seize grease so better buy your own, it is worth the money. Installed it very easy, on a perfectly cold engine, tightened it by hand and then additional quarter turn. Immediately I noticed better cold start,engine purring, more power in high revs. Motor became more responsive and less sluggish.
    Used Denso on another vehicle, but this time I went for NGK because this type has iridium core, and Denso has copper. NGK is better priced too.

    This plug is listed as an exact fit for the 1996-2002 Toyota 4Runner. This is NOT true. The 3rd generation 4Runner takes a dual electrode plug. The correct plug is part number 3967, NGK number BKR5EKB-11.

          Great plug. Upgraded from platinum to these in 2000 GS300 Lexus. Smoother idle and response when u hit the gas. I also put in NGK plug wires as well. Well worth the investment. Car runs like a champion. Noticeable difference when u upgrade from platinum plugs and get new plug wires also. I will upgrade with these plugs n wires(NGK wire set), for my Frontier pickup when its due for a tune up!

            These NGK Iridium plugs were OEM in my other car and I found out they had an application for my 2004 Tacoma 2.4L so I decided to try them out instead of changing out the OEM standard plug every 30,000 miles. I think they added a little pop to the acceleration. Hoping they improve fuel economy too, but I don't drive that truck as much anymore.

                These are some great little plugs. I noticed immediate increase in performance. The engine in my Subaru Baja seems to be very happy to have these plugs firing away. I cannot attest to their longevity quite yet, but I think if they last at least 50K, I will purchase again. They seem to be well worth the price.

                NGK makes the only iridium plug on the market with a solid iridium center electrode. Advance Auto's price is as low as it gets on these fine plugs.

                  I was told by my mechanic friend to purchase this spark plug to improve the performance of my 1999 Mazda. The website was great as I plugged in make and model and they recommended the correct plug. I hope to keep my car for another year and I just might make it with the help of Advanced Auto Parts.

                      Iridium spark plugs are the best, they last a very long time 80-100k miles. NGK are also one of the best plug makers. These fit great into my 1995 Subaru Legacy and will likley last longer than the car.

                          I am looking at the installation instructions on the NGK website, specifically the torque specs. The only thing not listed from either of you is the seat type. There is a flat seat type and a conical seat type, both have completely different torque specs. Which seat type are these iridiums ? I have a Camaro and have only used AC Delco parts, but their iridium plug doesn't fit my car...so I'm going NGK ! Thanks !

The Chevrolet vehicles this particular spark plug fits are 1998-2002 Chevrolet Prizm and 2001-2004 Chevrolet Tracker. If you could please provide the year and engine size of your Camaro, I can assist in locating the correct iridium spark plugs for your vehicle.
