    I want to replace my plugs. I used NGK my last time, what do you guys recommend. I want to use OEM, Denso's am I correct? I don't want to use iridium, or platinum, just standard plugs like it used from the factory. I have a 2.7. Thanks y'all.

    The Platinum plugs are a cooler heat range, and are really only nessesary if force inducted.

    I have these, no wires whatsoever. They run right from the wiring harness and slip over the plug down in through the top of the valve cover.

    Ok, here ya go. Look on top of the valve cover you can see where it is bolted down and has a 4 wire plug. The plug is down in the head, the coil pack slips down into the head and then it bolts down, then plug it in...

    I replaced my OEM wires with the NGS set and also replaced the plugs with NGK Iridium. No problems running smooth.

    I read a lot about if you use iridium the world would end, not for me atleast..... All is good. I'm sure I'll mess something else up later.

    Toyota designed it, not me...LOL. Ford uses them, Dodge does, nissan... I can go on and on. It's just the type of coil packs they use. I use NGK plugs in my truck.
