bosch platinum +4 spark plugs
i put these on my celica last weekend, and i felt a little more throttle response. i was wondering if anyone else had them on their celica and if you felt a noticeable difference in Performance. rice

you shouldn't have felt anything, the celica come stock with iridiums, which are just as good as the Bosch ones, if not better (Iridium>Platnum)

well they did have about 55,000 miles on them.. thats why i probably felt a little better response. i didnt know about the iridium being even better than the bosch spark plug.. oh well... so bosch plugs thumbsupor thumbsdown

yes, you are feeling a restoration of power!

The Bosch ones are just as good I'm sure, but they aren't loads better than the Denso Iridiums.

they might be cheaper, denso's are $6-10 each

how often are you suppose to replace spark plugs .
i saw my friend do it to his car and its seems preety easy just unscrew old screw in new but he did mention about "gapping" or something is this necessary if i buy denso iridium ones. so how easy is it to replace??

changing them is easy, just make sure you have an extension rod for your socket wrench.

10 minutes, tops.

I posted a guide for that, but, as always, it feel from the front page.

it's a good idea to put anti-seize lubricant on the spark plug threads though.

celica has a distributor less ignition.

Just replace the plugs, and go.

And Steven, if you torque them to the factory specs, you won't need seize protection.

Unless you are like me, I throw the factory specs out the window and do it redneck style, hand tight grin

That's exactly what I did but I like the extra margin of safety by using anti-seize lubricant. I guess it was just the way I was taught...
