NGK Laser Spark Plug
Hey, would you guys install either one of the NGK Laser / Iridium IX / G-Power Platinum plugs? or you would still stick around with Denso?

I've heard good things about the Iridium, no experience with it yet though, sorry

My 2002 GT uses iridium plugs. They are to be replaced every 196000KM (like it says in the maintenance book.
Dealer wants $28.00 per plug, but I was able to price the same ones out at NAPA Auto parts for $11.00 each. My car just hit 100000KM so I have another two years to go.
No matter which brand you get-iridium is the newest and the best.

so the NGK laser plugs wouldn't be a bad idea to go then, just as long as they are iridium plugs, it's cool...

no, unless one of them is bad, you shouldn't need to replace them

Either iridium spark plug is good to use, NGK and Denso are good quality brand and are usually oem spark plugs.
The Bosc Platinums aren't that bad for the money but I've had a lot of respectable mechanics advise me to "NEVER USE BOSC ON A JAPANESE CAR", they say stick with either NGK or Denso for japanese vechicles and Bosc for European cars. And I have had some problems with Bosc Platinums with my 95 Eclipse GST so thats why I stay away from Bosc.

Like your car is going to know the difference between a Bosch o2 sensor or a denso O2 sensor for the same application!

Guys, regardless of who makes the part, if it was meant to fit the car in question, it will work, period. I used Bosch parts on mazdas, NGK plugs in american cars... it doesn't matter one bit.

True, if you want to stick with original equipment, then go with denso, that is what is used in our cars from the factory, but to exclude a part because it's made by a euro-sounding company, that's just plain recockulace!!!!

Bosch, Denso, NGK, they all make quality parts... But since our cars came with iridium plugs, they should only be replaced with iridium plugs, and so far, only the JDM companies (NGK and Denso) make them. Sure, the Bosch 4-way platinums would work great in a boosted or nitrous application, but on the NA celica, you should stick with iridium.

If you're going to choose one part over the other, make sure it's for the right reason, not just because of who makes it.
