    Guys what is the benefits of replacing my OEM spark plugs with Iridium or platinum spark plugs? Is it worth the price? I replace those SP every 10k kilometers and I don't feel any changes every time I replace them.parehas lang ng nagamit at yung bago. BTW this is for my APV,G16A na matanda pa sa lolo ko ahahahahahaha.

    not worth it! stick to oem spec SP and base on my personal experience they dont last that long, sa civic ko isa pa sa cause ng erratic idling.

    Ask your service advisor regarding change interval for Iridiums. If it is every 60k then its way cheaper. And fc is abit better with iridiums. Tested this with a 2.7 fortuner.

    I prefer Denso. They have an office in Banawe. They have a complete catalogue for all vehicles. They are professional(they answered all my questions and showed and gave me the corroded copper plugs lol) and offer free installation. I tried looking for NGK Fortuner-specific spark plugs. It was difficult to find.
