    To anti-seize or not is the question.....

    Going to be replacing my plugs sometime in the next week...I know how much #8 is a PITA but my question isnt about that...do you guys use anti-seize on your plugs when you install them? I've heard that NGK uses some type of special zinc-chromate shell "dont ask because I dont know" in order to prevent them from seizing. True...false...?

    I have never heard this. My motto is when in doubt use anti-seize. It really can't hurt anything that has threads that can seize.

    I use it on my cars, it makes it so much easier later on when they need to be replace again.

    On anything that is repeatedly removed throughout the life of the engine. Always use Anti-seize.

    Always use antiseize, the time you don't will be very painful.

    #8 from the bottom is a snap. Takes longer to jack the car up than actually change the plug.
