try to find the NGK 7 series somewhere online and order from there. they are one step colder plugs which means they will give you a slight slight boost in HP, even if your engine is NA. ive heard that hondas can lose HP from bosch plugs...and they are not recommended by the manual. at least get the NGK 6 series, they are cheap, but stay away from bosch.

I picked up my NGK's from NAPA. They were pretty cheap costing me about $11.00. The ones your talk'n bout are the iridiums which are more expensive and actually give you less gain. However they are said to be able to last longer. I just put my NGK's in this week and it felt like it was a little stronger but I'm sensitive to that. I'm even able to tell if the gas I buy is crappy or not by the feel of things. I did however see that my engine still had the origional honda factory plugs in :( and my car has 127,000 miles on it. The way I knew they were origional is b/c they had a date on them when they were made. Unless they just used plugs from the same time my car was made when they tunned it up but I highly doubt it.

Peace

:cool:

im talking about the copper NGKs...the one step colder 7 series...im not sure if you were talking to me or the thread starter in your first couple lines.

hehe yeah i replaced my ORIGINAL spark plugs at 90k as well. pretty fuckin ridiculous. the previous owner of my car must have been a true idiot...the battery that came with the car was not even a car battery, it was about the same size as a weedwhacker battery :eek: :rolleyes: :eek2:
