Try again.

Poor ignition, bad spark, slow response, engine missfires, catalytic converter damage over time. Eventual dead car in need of new spark plugs within no time at all.

I read I think at a denso web sight that Iridium is used, they are only replaced at overhaul. gap adjustment is the only mantenance needed

I dont believe what you said at all Luckey. I work at a parts store and all the employees that I work with are ASE certified and we make plenty of money!!! I am the only one not certified, but I know what I am talking about I placed 11 in the state for our recent high school autos competition! I live in Wisconsin and know what I am talking about and I am 18 years of age.

Thanks!

^^ granted in a GT they won't be under the same stress as in a GTS. But still, it's like putting the wrong fuel in your car, maybe at first it won't be too bad, but it will ruin the engine overtime

they should. Most auto part places do. They don't HAVE to be denso's but if you want your car to run the best it can make sure they are iridium.
