which one of these is OEM lol

T@co_Pr3runn3r 03-02-2009 03:53 AM

Denso iridiums are oem on the 2.7l............

TacticalBacon13 03-02-2009 04:49 AM

if i can remember chris4X4 said that iridium do not give you any power increases in our engines over the regular copper ones.

anyone ever run Bosch Plat. 4's? I have used those in several of my past vehicles that gave increase hp & fuel economy

Stangman 03-02-2009 05:40 AM

I put the denso irediums in mine @ 60k. No there will be no power increase, but you won't have to change them for another 100k. Not to mention I work at a dealer, so I get one hell of a deal.;):D

Correct. However, the ignition system on the 2.7 is designed for Iridium plugs, so they should be used on it.

I think the manual says anything between .038 and .043


Personally, I shoot for .040.

ooo, OK, think I pulled the .043 from the owner's manual instead of service manual. I'll split the range then when I change them out in the real near future.

i put ngk iridiums in my old ford and it gave me better performance. it never ran so good. i guess it don't work that way with the tacomas

T@co_Pr3runn3r 03-02-2009 06:13 AM

I used them once in my car & only the wallet noticed the difference but it didn't come with them. Just using NGK copper in it but the tacoma 2.7 comes with iridiums so that's what'll go back in.

chris4x4 03-02-2009 06:36 AM

Only time I use iridiums is if supercharged...

Since we're on the topic of plugs, what's a good gapping tool for the electrodes?

humanoid 03-02-2009 07:17 PM

Cool, thanks, fellas!

bobwilson1977 03-03-2009 11:21 AM

I use whatever's on sale at the time: Champions, NGK, Autolite... or whatnot. I usually get 50-60k out of them before I change them, and even then they still look fine. Mines and older taco with an actual cap and rotor system, so I have to change that stuff out about every 60k as well. Its all pretty cheap and easy to do. Usually do wires every 75k.
