    NGK on one bank and Denso on the other. Don't ask why it is, no one knows the definitive answer.

    It would be OK to put one or the other in your Taco. Check out the link below and use the drop down menus on the top left corner to figure out what plugs you will need.

    I replaced mine with NGK Irridium plugs. I bought them @ Advanced auto parts.

    You should only replace your plugs with NGK or Denso.

    I noticed some of the ones on sparkplugs.com arent dual grounded. Is it necessary to have spark plugs with dual grounds?

    Yes, because it's what's required for the 5vz-fe V6.
