    I have a totally stock jdm b16a in my car and I plan on replacing plugs, wires, cap and rotor

    just wondering what temp plugs I should run

    I was looking on Inlinefour and they have a few different NGK plugs

    the 5 and 6 temp plugs are $50
    the 8's are $20
    and the 7's are $60

    just wondering what you guys think on this,
    I did a quick seach by the way and couldn't find anything durring my increasingly short break time at work

    thanks
    Sean

    $60 plugs? WTF MATE.

    inlinewhore is such a fucking rip off. fuck that place.

    go to autozone and pick up some NGK# BKR6E-N11 for $2-$4 each.

    I should have stated that I wasn't intending on buying from there, just looking for different options so I went there for a reference.

    anyway,
    I have to run to auto-zone anyway so I will probably do that
    do you know if they have oem rotors and caps or should I get those somewhere else?

    thanks for the reply

    for a stock engine, 1 or 2 heat ranges hotter is all you really need.

    AutoZone will have cap/rotor/wires (though i wouldnt use their wires) and all that gravy tune up shit.
