      Comments about NGK Nickel Spark Plug (BKR5EKB-11):

      This is same spark plug that came from factory on the 1ZZ-FE motors without VVT-i, and these NGK ones are so reliable that I have had one last 30k+ and usually because this is copper 30k is around the time you would change em out. ONLY use double electrode copper plugs on this motor because its specifically asks for it on your valve cover and owner's manual.

      Toyota Owners Manual has this listed as a replacement spark plug number.

                  These plugs work great, can last 50,000 mi. I use these instead of spending extra on platinum or iridium. They last as long as you'd ever need, meet OE specs, and you can just set them to the factory gap. (no need to worry about figuring out a wider gap, like you do with platinums)

                          A:

                          With reference to your inquiry on the NGK Nickel Spark Plug (BKR5EKB-11) - Part No. 3967, all the spark plugs are pre-gapped from the factory, the fact remains that the gap must be adjusted for the vehicle that the spark plug is intended for. Those with modified engines must remember that a modified engine with higher compression or forced induction will typically require a smaller gap settings. For any further assistance please feel free to call us at: 1-877-238-2623 or visit the nearest Advance Auto Parts store and one of our Parts Pros will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.

                          They should be pre-gapped however they may have been packaged by someone like me on a Friday Or Monday.

                          With dual ground plugs check the gap with a spark plug gap feeler guage found in the tool aisle at Advanced.

                          The service department and/or any qualified mechanic checks the gap before installation regardless unless they are non-adjustable; which these are adjustable.
