    spark plugs, when are they needed?

    I have a 07 GTX Limited SCi & a 08 Gti 155, my question is when should the spark plugs be changed and what type should I put in them.... GAP?

    yea the ngk's are fine. i change mine after the first tank of gas in the season. let the old plugs burn the old fuel and stabil and then throw a new set in and your good til next year.

    Three sets of Densos went bad on me fairly quickly, so I went back to NGK, but their iridium version (DCPR8EIX), and they've been flawless.

    MY 2 Cents: For my '06 RXTs, I buy the annual maintenance kit here on GH: http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...oducts_id=1079

    Everything I need for the whole year, no gap work on the plugs, the right part every time, and my purchase helps support this sight. It's been my standard since 2006 - Thanks GH!

    I don't gap them. Take them out of the box.... Anti seize on the threads and roll out. Tighten them by hand and then put the wrench to them. I usually get them tight by hand and then go 1/4 turn. You should be good to go. They are usually really close on the gap... I believe that they come at 31-32.
