Not sure if that car likes Bosch...

But do a search here...Bonnies seem to dislike them.

Would that be a 2.0 ?

I'd be more willing to use NGK or Denso over Bosch

Our ignition systems on out 3800'* eat the bosch platinum center electrodes.... This is also a common problem on the Chevy V8'*... I have seen a series of theser plugs with the HEI distributor burn out the plugs....

It may be OK on a 2.2 in the Elantra.... Also what is the Plug gap for the 2.2...

Keep in mind that all of the 3800'* have a .060 gap and iirc it takes more juice to jump that gap

I believe that the 2.2 will be in the .040 area
