    hi all the car going in for a service v.soon, i tend to buy all the basic service parts 1st. Only thing left to buy is the SPARK PLUGS, my cars a 2.4 V6. knowing that this car cannot have no real affordable mods, i would like a second opinon as someone has recommended these. Im looking at the Denso Iridium Spark plugs IK22. I dont mind spending the extra money for these, however will i see any difference in performance etc..?

    cheers guys

    Hello mate, well you know what i think lol. The ones you need are IK20's IK22's won't fit buddy. As you say it's hard for 2.4 performance mods.

    The spark plugs will not create a largely noticeable increase in performance, however it will increase the overall efficiency of your car, as the spark is more defined and stronger than any other plug can give you. You should see some sort increase within the throttle response, also a slight improvement in economy, due to the efficiency the plugs offer.

    I know it's sad, but my opinion of these plugs are very high!

    If you want Bosch Super 4 Quality get K20TXR's, the same if not better. IK20's are much better than Super 4s

    Not being funny, but what would you think if you overheard some blokes in the pub talking about the relative qualities of spark plugs?

    It's a bit geeky.

    Mind you, when smashed last night, I gave my mates a lecture about how much fun online gaming is on the PS3...sad.

    Well it's my job to know about these sort of things, just goes to show not many people actually know the difference, as you've kindly proved for me ;)

    Ah well, if it's your job then your excused. It's always better to talk to someone who knows their onions. Unlike the spotty oik I was talking to in PC World today...

    Arse and elbow spring to mind. Perhaps I should put something in the Rant forum!

    Ik20's will fit most B5's mate, well worth it, especially as yours is the 180bhp version. :)

    Yep unfortunately i have to know minor details like these lol, but it does help. I can't help you on Computers, if you lived in West Sussex my brother would be able to as he runs his own IT company, but im a bit of a tard on that subject :s
