    Looks like you got the ones for the V6 instead of the 4 cyl.

    Ah. I’m using a Haynes manual. I believe it’s for all 1st gen Tacoma’s, 4runners, and t100s. Maybe it’s a different part number? It looks like these I bought are dual pronged also.

    2.7 uses a single prong/electrode. V6 needs the dual electrodes

    Gotcha. I reckon I’ll just have to take them back and try to find the correct one. Trying to stay as close to OEM as possible

    Honestly I would go with the ones that are shown in @Blue92 's post from the users manual, since that is directly from Toyota's own mouth.

    The ones showing on partsouq have a slightly different part number, I don't know if the difference matters but it's better to err on the side of caution

    No but it should be the same plugs. Im reading this out of the owners manual in the glovebox. Id look to see if you have one.

    upload_2019-7-18_15-22-48.jpgThis is all my manual is showing me. I’m starting to think it’s not the one that came with the truck. Looks like one for a 3.4 not a 2.7

    In the back there should be a section with all the recommended oil types and levels, some part numbers etc. Thats where I found my info.

    The user manuals for any particular model year aren't specific to any one engine, like @Blue92 said in the back it should break down the specifics based on engine
