Searched and found everyone likes Bkr6 and 7e plugs on 1.8t cars.
Whats the best plug for a 2.8?
Thanks for any help.

I'm using the NGK iridium right now, runs like a charm.

Has anyone used those +2 or +4's?
just wondering how they work on the 2.8l's...specially if you have a 12v like me :D

Don't use the multi electrode plugs.
Get a standard resistor type or an iridium. Stay far away from the Bosch Platinum +2/+4 stuff.

NGK's are the way to go. I had a set in my 12V and they worked great. Stay in your stock heat range, unless you're boosted or sprayin.

well thats good to know :) i guess take the one autozone has on their system?
i guess i will look at the iridium ones...but the bosch ones i saw were 4 pronged...
Anyway, What should i gap the single electrode ones??
anyone have a preferred model spark plug?
Thanks for the help guys,i will be picking up spark plugs this afternoon!
And we'll see if it makes my car's power back!

I don't know what the N/A cars are running for a plug gap. Check and see if there's a gap recommendation under the hood on the emissions sticker.
Other than that I don't know. ... I'd check my repair manual, but it went up in flames w/ the garage.
