    Hi everyone, new to this board.
    Not sure why, but the V6 4.0 2006 engine still uses standard spark plugs. I bought champion iridium (item #9202) as listed by them and other car part stores, and guess what, they are the wrong part. The stock plugs are of the "long reach" type, meaning that they are about 1/4 inch longer at the thread part than the champion plugs. I emailed them a few days ago and still have not heard from them yet, hopefully they are researching the issue as we speak. Bosch does not even make any platinum or iridiums for this engine.
    Anyway, does anyone know of a good "long reach" platinum or iridium plug that will fit the 06 engine? Thanks.
