^^^ What he said.
I have OEM Wires and am trying this Bosch Platinum/Iridium Plugs. They are ok but expensive as hell. I'll probably be going back to NGK or Denso next tune-up.

Just stick with OEM spec (NGK iridiums). I just replaced mine a week ago, and my gsr runs perfect, especially hitting vtec. It runs smoother throughout the rpm band too.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think that JDM engines ever have the c1, I believe its only b18c for the gsr versions in Japan.

OEM Spec plugs are platinum, not iridium -- and they can be had quite inexpensively at O'Reilly's. They've been the most inexpensive source I've found.

You're right, but people just say B18C1 when referring to JDM SiR-G engines b/c the ITRs were B18C, also.

Not that it matters in this case....they both use the same plugs.

I use OEM NGK's. Actually just replaced mine last night, and the car runs a lot better. I should have replaced them after I seafoamed the car.

OEM is always good or honda wouldnt have put in there for stock, but i run NGK Iridiums. Researching on iridums they are s'psoed to be able to handle higher heat. All in all if ur stock run OEM. Dont worry about upgrading plugs until your really building up your motor (i.e FI or high compression)

Iridiums are a hotter plug, and they're not needed. For F/I, you use a colder plug. NGK BKRE7's are very popular.
