Default ngk is the to getty-up and go

i posted in an earlier thread that had put acdelco platinums in my bonny, i replaced them with the ngk tr55'* gaped at .057 and man what a difference. she runs smoother and stronger. i know alot of ppl say that plugs really don't make the difference but it did for mine. i also replaced the fuel filter and brakes. so just as an overcap of what i have done this past week/weekend.

1)plugs
2)oil change
3)tranny filter
4)fuel filter
5)cleaned k&n
6)brakes (all 4)
7)tire rotation
sprayed and blew out the radiator flu'*
9)checked belts and hoses
10)full undercarriage cleaning
11)full engine compartment cleaning (even the air filter for the fresh air into interior)

well maybe after all this i won't have any problems (remember the wife packs everything so i have to plan for anything.oh and by the way has anyone regreased their rear wheel bearing and if so how much of a chore is it. well it'* off to bed for 6 hrs of sleep and then 16 hrs of driving, wish me luck!

I loved those TR55'* for a year.....until the mods dictated another heatrange colder. The TR55 is one colder than stock, and the TR6 is two colder. Both V-Power design, and great plugs!

Couple bucks apiece. My local Napa doesn't stock the TR6, but they do stock the TR55. I order the TR6'* 12 at a time, and they ship overnight.

Where have you guys been buying the tr55s? AutoZone and Advance don't carry them. Murray'* has them, but they're $4 each!

In the Northwest, GI Joe'* has them, but you can also get them at Napa. TR55'* in stock, they'll order the TR6 overnight. Talk to Kennginn. He'* a Napa Manager. I order 12 TR6'* at a time.
