Hi,

The Spark plugs are a job on my list to change in the near future on my car,im not sure as to the service interval though.

:excl: The coil packs are very fragile if they`ve been on the car for a long time and are easy to damage.

There about £85 each :o and theres one for each sparkplug.Thats why ive left the job for now.

Theres a guy on another forum im on whos just repaired his coil packs as they were cracked,so there is another option rather than replace them with new ones if there not to badly damaged.

Hope thats some help to you.

Chips..

I think they're Platinums as standard, and should be changed every 60k IIRC.

You can now get Iridiums for around £40 for 6, so I'd go for them (and will be ordering some early next week)

Denso IK22's if your BPU, IK24's if more

NGK also do Iridiums

Hey guys, thanks for the replys.

I've done sparks on 2jz's many times so doing them isnt a problem.

I'll probably just get some bog standard platinum plugs, cheers :)
