    I just did them on my 4-Runner and paid $11.99 each @ the dealer for 8 plugs.

    Only use iridium plugs if your a bit lazy or running the S/C which comes with them. Otherwise good ole cheap copper plugs have the lowest impedance and are cheaper in the long run.

    Look in the owner's manual. The OEM plugs specified for the 2.7L are the Denso Iridium Long Life plugs referenced by mistermanny, good for 100k miles. Dealer markup is higher than Rock Auto ($5.97 each), but there's no shipping charge.

    Huh, I didn't know they stuck iridium plugs in the 4 banger stock.

    ^Yep. However, I don't know if they are the same P/N as the iridium plugs included in the V6 supercharger kit.

    ^I initially ordered 6 from Rock Auto for my V6. Then my gapper tool slipped and hit the ceramic on two plugs. :eek: I didn't trust them after the hit so I bought two more from the dealer at much higher prices.

    Holy shit are you gaping them with a hammer? Using a gaping tool is a pretty light handed process. Hard to think you damaged porcelain:p
