Just realized you're in Houston. Get your parts at Champion toyota (formerly Jay Marks) for the MR2 discount. Plus Jeff is a great guy.lilhoodlum86 said:really??
i was gona go turbo later, so i was thinkin bigger might be better.
stock are 5mm right?
I've had ngk coppers in mine for the last 20k that are still going strong.nbvolks said:You can find the OEM Toyota units from partznet for about that same price.
Copper plugs on a 5s are a waste in my opinion. You'll have to change them more often with no appreciable gain. A good brand of platimnum plugs and be done with it.
They're still working. I don't know that I'd say they're still "going strong". If anything this only reinforces the fact that different plugs in the 5s make little or no difference. Copper plugs gnerate a better spark, but wear out faster than platinum plugs, that's why MR2s, both turbo and NA left the factory with platinum plugs. On the turbo with the boost cranked up you might want copper plugs to generate a stronger spark. But with teh 5s... hell you could have two piece of flint in there to ignite it and would perform about the same.Nik said:I've had ngk coppers in mine for the last 20k that are still going strong.
If your car is currently stock, then yes. If you're going to go turbo later, then you're going to want all fresh stuff anyway, so worry about it then.lilhoodlum86 said:ok so i should jus stick with OEM stuff?? even if i go 5sfte??
