    Denso Spark Plugs #K20HR-U11 (Toyota part #90919-01235) for V6 2nd gen


    EDIT: Whoops sorry didn't realize you don't have a 2nd gen. You can go to a Toyota dealership and they'll give you the right plugs, or go to any autoparts store and tell them the year and type of engine.

    Those you linked have the right part number.
    Denso K16TR11 or NGK BKR5EKB-11 are both good to go.

    Dont forget to double check the gap (1.1mm/0.043")

    Yep. Should say under the hood too. The gap needs to be .043 both sides.

    And do yourself a favor and open each box and check the grounds before you leave. I picked up six at the dealer, inspected them at the counter, and found two of the six to have misaligned ground electrodes (both ground electrodes were not centered on the center electrode by a decent amount). This wasn't just gapping, they were off-axis.

    What is the point in the dual ground electrode setup on these plugs? Does it give a hotter spark?

    Some stuff. Not a lot, just some.
    He is getting them on-line.

    It has to do with the type of ignition system Toyota uses on the 3.4


    OP, use the member discount

    Is he, or was he just providing a link for discussion purposes? What is really going on inside the OP's mind? What, exactly, are his intentions? Will we ever really know? Hell, I don't even understand what's going on in my mind. :der:

    Before you go to the part store, you should call just to make sure the have the right plug/part, I know here at my store we don't carry the Denso plugs, and we have to order the ngk. Call just so you don't have to make the trip.

    Before you call, you should make sure you have the right phone number, and that would require a phone book. But before you use the phone book, you should make sure it's up-to-date. But before you check for a phone number, you should yell across the room to have someone check to make sure you have a phone book, so you won't have to make the trip across the room just in case you don't have one.

    lol j/k :D
