    I've seen a lot of posts about spark plugs for a V-6 Tacoma but haven't stumbled across any recommendations for a 2.7. What is the plug of choice for an '02 2.7? Does the Denso/NGK rule still apply? Is the gap chart on Sparkplugs.com accurate?
    Thanks,

    I have the same engine. Just go to the dealer and they'll give you what you need. I went to the dealer and they gave me 4 Denso's. I'm pretty sure the original plugs in my trucks were all Denso's as well. Gap them at .42.

    be careful with the gap.I use Densos in my '96 2.7.The ones I got from the dealer were gapped at .24".Just about put them in.For my truck,the general consensus is .31" gap.

    This is the plug that the dealership will supply you: Denso K16R-U, single electrode pre-gapped at 0.031. I bought a set yesterday for just under $12.
