    If your engine is unmodified, stick to what your car manual recommends. Usually NGK or Denso.

    cold plugs are typically used when the engine is a high reving turbo charged engine.

    Using cold plugs in a stock non-turbo engine will just result in fouled plugs when driven in daily traffic.

    for the 323... the manual states that you can either use a cold or hot sparkplug.

    ok ang cold plugs kapag lagi kang nasa highway / long drive. pero kung city driving ka... dapat hot plugs.

    and kapag nag foul-up ang cold plugs, talagang ramdam mo.

    may nagsabi kasi sakin na cold sparkplugs, meaning yung higher heat rating (tama ba?)
    kasi naka-advance ang timing ko and may engine knock. cold spark plugs daw ang solusyon dun para di mag-knock

    Cold plugs help in curing knock in advanced timing but it's not a necessary item.

    What fuel do you use? If you advance your timing its adviced to use high octane like Petron Blaze or Velocity... or your timing is just way too advanced.

    Check what your stock plug is and get the next heat range... for example if you're using an NGK BKR5E, switch to BKR6E.

    BKR6E na ung rating ng stock plugs ko e, and wla na daw higher pa dun (ung BKR7E, o meron ba talaga nito?)
    so i guess stick na lang talaga ako sa rating na un?
    pero may nakita rin ako sa mga bosch plugs, may counterpart yung BKR6E na platinum tip. ok kaya un? ramdam kaya difference? P130 per piece lang kasi e
