I have almost 75,000 miles on my original plugs
I need new ones. SE-R net has some conflicting info on the Boschs and NGK's. Any of you guys have any good/bad expierences with them? Price? TIA.

Go with the NGK plugs. Copper or platinum will do. The platinum are more expensive, but will last longer. I believe they are about $7.50 per plug.

Check your wires, cap and rotor as well. You might just want to replace that stuff while you're in there. Just order the OEM stuff from Nissan and you'll be good. I used the aftermarket cap and rotor and it sucked!

Finally, use anti-seise on the plugs and be careful when screwing them in. You really don't want to cross thread those puppies and it's easy to do on an aluminum head.

Autolite titaniums????

Are those one notch better than platinum? Or just a big Marketing game.

I haven't used them, but when was the last time you heard of an Autolite performance product? I thought so.


In any case, I'll bet you that they are just another gimick like the Bosch Platinum +4 or Splitfire plugs.

On a side note, one of my friends tried the splitfire plugs in his MR2 and they made it run worse! It was missing at idle and under acceleration. We tried new wires, cap and rotor, everything. we finally put in some regular old copper plugs and problem solved!

The way to go is NGK plats if you dont want to do lots of matience. You could go with NGK regulars and do like Jay H. did and replace them like every month to freshen up the motor. The plats were like 7.50 a piece from courtsey when I got some, dont remember exact price and the invoice is in the bedroom now. The plats are good for like 60k or there abouts. The regulars usualy can last say like 10k maybe....but hell you can get all 4 for like 5 bucks most the time. So if you wanted you could get a new set very week if you really felt like it.

Stay away from bosch like the plague. Hell i worked for them once and I wont buy those plugs for my car. They are fine for other cars but the sr20 doesnt like them that much, they will do the job but the NGKs do it much better.

Thats my opinion and I could be wrong
