Doin spark plugs, need some opinions.

Its time to swap out the plugs in my 04 Tacoma 2.7. Im looking for some opinions on which plug to run. There seem to be some big cost differences with all the versions available these days. Anyone advise?

i would just suggest to sticking to either denso or ngk standard plugs. that, you'll know that they are the correct heat range and all.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

I think the Densos were OEM on your truck. Stick with those and you will be good.

Denso Iridiums. They will last 100,000+ miles.

I recently changed mine

I bought NGK irridiums from Advanced Auto parts. Same price as platinum plugs. Irridium is better from what I have read.

Yup, Iridium is far superior to platinum or double platinum.
