Spark plugs, what's the best method?

Post by Alkemyst »

Outside of the recommended brands. What is the best method for R&R? What torque specs are you using? What tools to gap? Anti-seize? Dielectric? Best buys on the coil packs and wires?

Gap with feeler gauges, the twist disc damages the harder plugs, so pliers or a tool made for the task is best.
.027 to .030 gap.

Ruthenium plugs are almost required for a tuned car.

Denso coils are the only ones to get. Others have tried the Accel brand with poor results.

These are coil-on-plug, so no wires needed.

Thanks I have feelers. Some in other car worlds have updated the wiring to the coil packs...probably overkill.

I have heard the coil packs are short lived.

I am still looking for a good how too. Looks like once you get the engine cover off you still have to remove a ton of shit.
