    From what I have found in my research, if you switch to iridium or platinum plugs, you get less performance from the engine. IMHO, use what the manual suggests, and just change them when required. :)

    I agree. I changed mine to NGK Iridiums all around and have seen a noticable difference in gas mileage. When I change them again, I'm putting in recommended plugs!

    With the write up that chris did here and the $25-$30 it would cost for denso coppers ever couple of years, just stick to the OEM.
