if your gunna spend the money on em why not go a bit better and get the NGK Iridiums then? According to NGK there better than the Platnums.

edit: just incase your interested, i've got the iridiums, noo issues, run fine on lpg too

Price for a set of 6??? And what gains did you guys get out of them was it just high rev gains or throughout. :D :D I think i'll get them any way cause the thought of never having to change my f**k plugs again is worth the dosh. :D :D :D What leads should i run with the iridiums????

retail on the NGK Iridiums at $24.99.
The genuine Ford plugs from Ford Spare Parts for the BA MKII XR6T (can't remember the brand, but there iridium too) are about half the rpice.

I have NGK iridiums, add me to the 'happy with 'em' list.
16 bucks each at supercheap. I also put a set of Qld Ignition Leads on at the same time.
NU Fairlane, Very Happy!
