NGK iridium spark plugs

I just recentlly replace the spark plugs in my 09/off road. Now the engine hesitates after slowing down like going around a corner on acceleration. Anyone have that problem?

I don't think the v6 requires iridiums and they may even be causing the hesitation. Might want to try changing them to the OEM Denso's.

Even though you know how to change them, there's a good how-to write up here:

Thanks for the input people. I checked the gap and it was fine so I've gone to the original plugs "NGK". Odd on the pasenger side were Denco plugs and on the drivers side I found NGK from factory. Go figure?

The 2 plug brands on the V6 are normal. I believe it is the same way on the 3.4. There are many theories on why Toyota does this.
