I need to know this too. I bought some NGKs from the local auto store, but they don't run as well as the oems did. I don't think they are hot enough.

seriously, and honestly .... DO NOT GET BOSCH Platniums. They're HORRIBLE for our import cars, especially accords. I had them in my old accord, and I lost gas milage, and I lost power at both the low end and WOT.

I lost about 40-48 miles per tank of gas. i kept track of all my gas milages because my job was tax deductible just incase you were doubting.

Also, i lost noticable amount of power when I press the gas, maybe that's just in my head, but i htink I did lose power, and many peeps on this board will agree with me.

And the last thing is that, with platniums, it's a bad metal, because it will melt if u ever plan to run NOS, etc....

the BEST one is Denzo Iridiums, they're the BEST for accords. And they have proven dynos to show you guys. And just so u know, denzo is about 3 dollars more a piece. So it's NOT BAD AT ALL.

What part numbers?

OK, so it sounds like the NGK or Denzo Iridiums are the way to go. I have also heard that it is good to go one colder. Can someone tell us exactly which ones to get? I just bought NGKs at the local parts store, but couldn't make them understand that I wanted "colder" plugs.

G Power? Not sure what they are, but here's my recommendation: NGK V Power copper plugs or Denso/NGK iridium plugs. Don't go platinum unless if you don't like changing your plugs for 100K miles. Err, too many negatives there. [Translation]: Get platinum if you like changing your plugs at 100K mile intervals.
