Question 120K plug change interval?

Why does my owners maintenance guide say for the 1GR-FE engines the plugs are changed every 30K but for the 2TR-FE it only says every 120K. That seems a little extreme. Does anyone have any different info or am I reading the maintenance guide wrong? I currently have 81K and it run fine.

You're reading it correctly. Toyota recommends changing plugs in 1GR-FE engines every 30K miles. Save yourself some $$ and do it yourself. Chris4x4 wrote an excellent how-to: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/tec...e-1-gr-fe.html

The 4 banger uses iridium plugs so they last longer.
