Pretty vague question. You may get flamed for not using search, but whatever.

Do you have a tune?

Typically guys are using BKR7E's or 1 step colder for tuned car.

And you'll also get the suggestion for the Bosch tri-electrode plugs for a tuned car. Which I've been wanting to try.

sorry i did one but didnt see a comparison on these, neither are 7e or bosch, they are cheap and were suggested by someone i know, just didnt ask at the time since i did not know there was two versions. the car is not tuned.

The number in the plug part# is the temp. So 6 is 1-step colder than 7.

I would try the NGK BKR7E's they're cheap enough to swap out at every oil change interval.

^^^ Complete opposite. The higher the number on the NGK plug, the colder it is. The plug that you run will depend on the boost level you are running. If it is stock, stick to BKR6E since the plug will burn the fuel more efficiently and you will avoid detonation. My rule of thumb on Nissans, if it is above stock boost, run colder plug. Also, play with the gap. .32 is the optimal as I have found. My SR20DET runs same plugs as my AUDI BKR6E stock.

ok great, do i do the normal plug or the one with the 3 prongs? both are cheap, I'm doing copper cores and replacing every 10-15k miles or thats the plan

Run regular coppers. Coppers burn the best and produce the best power, although, they burn out the quickest. Cheap enough to replace them, though.
