does it make a bit of difference?

i need to change the plugs on my 06 taco V6. i went to advance, got denso plugs PKH20TT which are platinum. i double checked and did a search to see if there was any headsup on changing the plugs since it seemed to me to be pretty straight forward. the platinums were the only ones listed at advance auto besides the highdollar iridums. mine didnt come with a manual so.....the part# yall are pushing must be copper plugs so techinacally i'm should be OK since the platinums should just last alittle longer....right?

What number are you referring to? Is it an E3 brand number or something? I'm only familiar with the iridium plugs (denso). IMO, the biggest benefit from iridium plugs is longer life, resulting in a cleaner spark over its lifetime. Getting a platinum or basic plug is fine, just remember you can't get the same mileage out of it as you can an iridium plug.

There may be other performance gains from using iridium and/or E3 and other strange shaped electrodes, but that's a whole other argument. If you're looking to save a few bucks and not travel into town, you'll be fine with whatever plug is available at the store.

The stock plugs work the best, iridum on a v6 is actually a performance loss. The stock plugs are also cheap as hell from the dealer, no reason to not use them imo.
