The shouldn't be because the dual grounded plugs are what's needed in the 5vz-fe. Have you tried rockauto.com?

I saw that on eBay. Just wondering what the biggest advantage of the standard K16TR11 vs Platinum PK16TR11? ~$4 difference between the two. I also see Iridiums but I don't think I want to get those unless they are significant advantage over the standards and Platinum. Thanks.

Basically the only advantage of the platinums over the standard copper is change interval. I actually used iridiums for a while (about 8k miles). During that time, I noticed that the car overall just did not seem the same. Gas mileage was worse and overall the truck seemed sluggish.

After going back to standard copper plugs, immediately the car had more power. I definitely felt the difference. Gas Mileage was near the same, a bit better.

So I would personally just got with stock copper dual prongs.

Yup, whatever you end up getting, better be sure to get the ones with the dual grounds if you have a gen1 v6.

I went with the standard. The illustration looks single but description says dual ground electrode and comes gapped at 0.44...do I need to change this at all or just install with with some anti seize?

If it's the dual then double check the gap and install it w/ anti-seize.
