Re: spark plug change for the R (row)

Absolutely. <br>I change my plugs every 10-12k miles - it's an inexpensive maintenance task

Re: spark plug change for the R (row)

Apparently, the radiator is around 48k... not 100% sure, I'm just venting early. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/mad.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I think 50k is fine for plugs unless you're having issues.

Re: spark plug change for the R (BeerEngineer)

My car was showing some hesitation after IPD Stage 1 at around 50k with no hesitation prior to the tune. Ran smooth as butter after new oem plugs.

Re: spark plug change for the R (BeerEngineer)

Is anyone running NGK racing-plugs instead of OEMs? I'm waiting for an inspiration to try them out.<p><IMG SRC="http://img4.imageshack.us/img4/853/plug1.jpg" BORDER="0">

They're supposed to work well under high boost.<br>They seem to be well liked amongst the Evo- and WRX-people.<br>I'll post my thoughts when I've tried them out.<br>
