Almost everybody is suggesting NGK (did a search) here and when I checked the one for GSR it cost $12 to $15 each spark plug. I'm like WTF, 50 bucks for spark plugs? The part number that I got is PFR6G (Laser Platinum) which is an OE replacement. Is this a regular price or any other cheaper alternative for NGK?

regular price. my dealer wants $20 per plug. I went with the denso iridiums for $50 shipped from ebay. of go with the bosch 4 tips. I had those in there and they were good too.

stay away from the bosch 4 tips. they are a waste of money. i partially blame them for my car not passing emissions a while back.

since you have a LS, the NGK coppers should be fine. they are around $5 a pop.

I wouldnt use copper if they are being used on a v tech. makes a big diff to use platinum. but if it isnt a v tech. just use NGK copper, $12 total at local parts store.

copper is a better conductor, but corrodes faster. platinum is about as good of a reliable conductor that you can get... with the exception of gold... but i would hate to see the price on gold tipped spark plugs [:?]


edit... i just noticed your post... if you have a GSR... go with the platinums. honda doesn't use them as OEM equipment for nothing.

Spoon Spark Plugs!
That's some expensive stuff.

But yeah, read that article by MD if ya'll don't know. I'll keep an eye out for cheap platnum ngk and post if I find anything.

Sounds to me like a dealer price...go to a parts store. They should be more like 6-7 $.

I would suggest updating your profile then and also I suggest going with a platinum plug.

the laser platinums are expensive but i gurantee no one else that makes plugs that make big differences when on the dyno. in my experiences with the b18c1 stock parts work better than aftermarket any day which includes timing belts, waterpumps, oilpumper, headgaskets, and any other seal except that dam cam seal which is better to get from str.
