    Does anyone know the part number for the Bosch Super Plus plugs?

    I have some I bought awhile back from Pep Boys and I just want to make sure they are compatible.

    These are Bosh Super Plus FR 8 DCX+

    No, but I do know there is nothing better than the densos that came in it or maybe the same NGK ones.

    If they were then why don't they come in them? What they come with is what they were designed around. NGK is the closest next best thing IMO.

    Tacos come stock w/ 3 NGKs and 3 Densos. So I guess, take your pick. I haven't changed mine personally, but what I consistently read is 3x3. Don't know which one I'll use yet, but it will be one of the two or maybe 3x3 like Toyota did from factory.

    I do agree w/ German parts for German cars, Japanese parts for Japanese cars, American parts for American cars theory. I had bosch plugs in an older Subby, and it ran like shit until I put NGKs in.

    Don't know about the Taco 4 bangers.

    OK, wouldna thought that & musta missed that. My 4 banger didn't come 2+2, all 4 were Densos. My bad on the 6s then. Weird to come mixed from factory. Won't venture a guess on why that would go on. All of one kind or another would seemingly make the most sense.

    I have run the Densos, and the NGK plugs in the Tacomas. I have found the Denso plugs hold their gap better than the NGK's. Where as the Denso plugs may expand to .045 or so, the NGK's will expand their gap to .051 or more.

    ...alright, sounds like Chris has done his homework on this. When I change all mine, Denso's all around.
