Any of the NGK plugs or Autolite

NGK V Power – TR55
NGK G Power Platinum – TR55GP
NGK Laser Platinum – PTR5C-13
NGK Irdium IX – TR55IX

Autolite –104
Autolite Double Platinum – APP104
Autolite Iridium / Xtreme Performance – XP104

If your running a tune that is adjusted for a colder heat range then use these

NGK – TR6 (+1 colder)

Autolite Iridium / Xtreme Performance – XP103 (+1 colder)

With all due respect to the gentleman from the south (FBM ), I can't recommend Autolite plugs. Had issues with the 104s in Mary's car. Replaced them with NGK 4177s on Marty's recommendation and all was well. Maybe I just got a bad batch, but fool me once...

I had no problems with mine. They looked slightly used when I swapped them out.

BTW: I change my plugs every two years regardless of the mileage accumulated, as I do in all my vehicles.
