Best brand plugs to use

Postby Cam2363 » Wed Feb 06, 2019 11:30 am

I plan to replace the plugs on my beretta with the 3100. I want to do iridium but should I go with acdelco or NGK or another brand?

Has anyone here put plugs in and had problems with that brand?

Also, any tips on getting the back 3. They seem like a pain. I plan to do the LIMG gasket in the spring, so while that is off, would that be a good time to do the back 3?

Thanks!

Either is a great choice, and easiest way I've found to get to the back three is to move the coil packs and ignition module out of the way.

No cool signature because Photobucket is a bucket full of douches.

Yep, x2. Unless your car NEEDS a tune-up now, there isn't a lot of good reason not to wait until doing the LIMG. The rear plugs aren't too bad, but definitely easier with the parts removed for the LIMG repair.

I love NGK, but have seen a couple of defective plugs over the last couple of years, the last bad one was an Iridium installed in a 3100, coincidentally. I think they perform better than Delcos, but the Delcos are solid reliably. Either are good options. I don't use Bosch much anymore, but they used to be great plugs too.

It really doesn't need it, I just figured I would do a massive tune up when I did the LIMG. I just installed NGK plugs in my moms honda van, and I had no problems, so I will probably go with the NGKs
