Which Spark Plug?

Hello all, Im trying to decide which spark plug I should use. I have a 2000 4x4 v6 Taco nearing the 90K mile mark and I wanted to replace the plugs. My question is this, does the plug matter? Ive heard different thoughts from people about this. Some say stay strickly to OEM, others say anything NGK, and I have this one guy saying the more money you pay the better. I dont think that last one is always the case but whatever.

Anywho, I do some light off-roading with my taco and drive it everywhere around town. The acceleration is nice to have but it really feels lacking right now. Anywho, what are you guys all running as far as plugs go?

NGK or Denso, it really doesn't matter, but whatever you get make sure you get the ones with the double electrode because they are what's required/recommended for the 5vz-fe, which is what you have.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.
