spark plugs?
I have been looking at at set of HKS sparks ($20 each), but I'm not sure if there any better than stock. Anyone have any info on them or any words on another co. thats good for sparks (denso maybe)??

I saw a dyno before and after of those installed on an Accord in some mag, and you can see about a 1hp difference over stock.

But it may not be any better than stock cause dynos can fluctuate as much as 1 hp each time it's used. spineyes

I have the Denso Iridium power plugs. It seem to run a little smoother & got a tiny bit of pep back. No major change though.

the main advantage to iridium sparkplugs is that they are more consistent...IT loves them to death.

Did the spark plug size change in 2003?? On sparkplugs.com and autozone.com 2003 celica GT shows no match but 2000-2003 does. I don't know of any changes in the GT engine from one year to the next.

they are, and I think denso makes them. I'm just not sure now if the plugs that come up for 02 will fit my 03. Chances are they will but I gotta be sure.
