Can anyone tell me what spark plugs are recommended for an FBT?

Apparently they are different ones to the Fairmont Ghia V8 and EL XR8 plugs. Preferrably cheaper ones, not expensive iridium ones.

Cheers

Yeah i got laughed at by a guy at Bursons, when i enquired about the price of Iridium spark plugs. He said you're not seriously gonna spend $140 on spark plugs are you? ....and he was the one trying to sell me them or the NGK $3 ones!

He didn't reckon they were worth it, but each to their own i guess.

Probably not worth it, plus you can find them cheaper than $140 for 8 (after I had already bought them). The $3 ones are value, replace them every 20,000kms or so and you're laughing.
