Default spark plug worries

After reading a little about spark plugs. I am worried now. I just put autolite platinum spark plugs in when I did my tune up 2 weeks ago. Now I am reading that this is a bad move for my car. What plugs can I use???

I believe you will be ok with autolite plats. Long as you don't have a big list of mods. Run them if you feel comfortable and see how they perform.

Platinum plugs are a no-no on a supercharged or Turbo engine. They will NOT last long. I'd suggest changing them to Irridium or Copper no longer than 30 days from now. With gas prices being what they are now, it might just pay you to do it now.

Read the "Tech Talk with NGK" in Techinfo if you haven't already.
