You can also buy them over the internet from noelsautoparts.com.au or rare spares at wagga wagga. There are 3 models
standard type, platinum,& double platinum. Prices range from about $3 to $13 ea. for the double platinum. If have the double platinum ones to put into the xr6 when I recieve the mandrel intake from Ferntree Gully Auto.
I will post the outcome.

This must be a hit and miss kind of thing. I hear people raving about these plugs, but I have seen back to back dyno's of XR6 spec NGK plugs and Autolites and the NGKs came out on top by a rwkw. Was like 143 vs 142 IIRC.

Location: Hobart

I'm currentrly running NGK Iridiums in ym car. There actually physically a different size plug to the normal ones! which had me freaked out at first, but they run fine. I double checked the part number three times - on the website, in the book and got someone to ring em. I noticed no difference with em.
I'd be interested to try these Autloites, but with the Iridiums supposebly lasting 100,000km's, it won't be for a while.

I got my autolites coming next week. also worth checking the lead resistances to see that they are low.

Bosch have got some new sports leads out, anyone used them ?

Ford XR6T (BA) Plugs are INCREDIBLY good, not the ngk, bosch or fords ngk iridiums.

Theres 2 types from ford, ask Joe to order them for you, definately worth it..

Ride: ford au wagon 4.0 na

Power: 170 rwkw

Location: Merrylands
NSW, Australia

I tested 3 different sets of ngk plugs ion the au 6 a month ago and the results were amazing using the gtech. A difference of 1.5 seconds on 0-100 kmph runs.

I have not tried Autolites yet but am keen to do so.

Just because some crappy dyno shows 1 rwkw difference at top end the torque seems to be dramatically affected along the way to top end speed.

On a dyno day a little while ago I threw in the best performing plugs and actually lost 5 rwkws .Funny thoough because I knew that my 0-100 times were bettered by a full 1.5 seconds!!!
