    The AutoLite's are as good (if not better) and are about half that.

    No problems with them at all.
    Just gonna try something different.

    I recommend one of three plugs... well normally just two because they are affordable.
    Affordable - NGK TR55 and AutoLite AR103
    Overpriced - Delco

    I might just have to try the AR103's on my next change. i have been pretty happy with the TR's, but always looking to try something else

    In my 78 Z28 I changed the plugs every year.
    I have 62K on my 02, should I change them yet? How often?

    I have them in my truck right after they first came out. WAYYYYY to expensive for a plug, better MPG.. yes.. by like 2 highway.. better starting/idle yes....

    but use cheapos and change them often. It will yield better results.

    I just changed the plugs and wires on my 01 WS6 recently. I used MSD wires and the NGK TR55IX. I like them. Good response and no longer a knock with the crappy 91 octane they have out here.

    I removed the bolts on the coil pack rail on the passengers side and the EGR tube. I was able to get in there and change the plug and wire on te number 8. It was a little easier with a spark plug wire wrench for $6.00. Great investment....

    I wish that the dumb engineers that engineered the tight quartes around # 8 had to remove it. It should be a requirement that before they get their degree that they have to actually work on them. I beleve if they had to there would be alot of things done differeent.
