TR55s are less than $2 at NAPA up here... $1.59 at O'Reilly. Look for TR55 or NGK395, same plug.

edit: oops, the Accels are probably the $7 plug, aren't they?

Yeah, those are the iridium plugs. Check Autolite iridium plug prices, and you'll see they're also about $7 each. The copper core TR-55 plugs are probably what you're after and what you have read about a whole lot on here.

Go with the NGK'*. I run them in both cars.





This can go on and on for days. Flip a coin and choose one.
