Default NGK TR55 plugs

I'm not to familiar with NGK plugs but my quesiton is, on eBay I see the TR55 plugs at different pricing for different cars, eg. Camaro, Vette, Firebird, Mustang, Silverado etc. at diffenent pricing but same quantity from the same seller. Does this make sense?

It could make sense if the Vendor is trying to make money.

Whatever the market will bear......so buyer beware.

Sorry if I'm off topic, but I'm getting ready to change the plugs in my L27 soon: I've been running the TR55s and have no complaints, but am wondering if I shouldn't try some Platinum plugs this time around.....Since I'm not SC'd I don't see why [other than cost] I shouldn't try them: any thoughts/comments?

It depends... I have Rapidfire 14 Platinums in my 95 SE right now... I will be pulling those for the TR55'*.... I liked the way the car ran with the TR55'*... And was somewhat dissappointed with the Rapidfire 14'*... But never got around to replacing them... I have TR55'* in the 91 LE bonneville as well and love them... I'd say Platinum or not is up to you... They do tend to last longer than a standard plug, but I pretty much never leave a set in that long anyhow...

For you guys wanting the TR55 for the 3800, the stock number is 3951

I ended up buying the TR55 Online at Sparkplugs .com for 2.24 each. One of the reason was due to the reasonable shipping charges to Canada.

Which car is it going into??

Ensure not to use Platinum for your boosted car.

Copper or Iridium for boosted car. ( I'm runnin Iridium.. and so far so good.. knock on wood.. )

It'* the same as I have in the 95 SSEi, this is a spare set so I can take advantage of the shiipping. I checked my reciept and it just says NGK V-power spark plug.

When you say locally, do you mean local to you? Do you think 2.24 each is a bit pricey? And thanks for the shipping situation Bill, I only use that as a last resort. I order stuff every week. You should see the list of stuff I ordered for Cath'* car...

Thanks Merdock and Bill........by the way Merdock.......nice to see you back on the forum and you did have some good advice after all.

Ok, Looking to upgrade the sparkplugs and was reading though this thread.

Accordingly, I need iridium for my SSEi, correct?

http://www.ngk.com/results_app.asp?aaia=1247442

According to that, they should be $6.95 each for the NGK TR55IX gapped at .060. I would want to get these and regap them to .055, correct? Thanks.
