      I have used all the other choices out there. NGK gave me added power and mpg. In this day with high gas prices it was appreciated.

          Car idles better and seems to have better pick up but it's ten times smoother running over the stock plugs. Havent really checked gas mileage yet but seems to be a slight improvement.

                      Installed in 2002 Hyundai Elantra GT to replace the stock Platinum plugs. These aren't rated to last as long, but I am told they run "hotter" and provide a better spark. Since I use this car to drive to work and back, I don't really notice a difference, except that they are slightly less expensive than the NGK Platinums. They get the job done.
                      Also checked gap using a feeler gauge before installing. There were 1.1mm as described on the box.

I am replacing the spark plug cap that fits on the plug at the engine and the diameter of the plug is to big at the cap. I can't find the part to fix it. Polaris was no help as they stopped making the part.

                            These are standard plugs, Replace them every 30K
                            Please ignore the other answer that says 30 or 50K, THESE ARE 30K PLUGS! Sure they will go 50K but they will not be performing the way they should.
