I currently run the NGKs. They are pretty good plugs. I have had them in for about a year.
They are starting to act up now though.
People with NGK experience are also telling me that they are great plugs but they don't last long. Roughly a year.

So I should be getting my Zex plugs in Wednesday. I'll let you know how they work. I hear great things about them.

I've heard good stuff about the ZEX plugs also but I've had no problems with the NGKs and yeah the life isn't the greatest but changing plugs is like a 10 minute job so it don't bother me.

Yeah exactly. They are cheap and easy to install.

So in the end it pretty much just comes down to NGK and Zex. Either one is good.

I'm curious to see how these Zex plugs work. I'll let everyone know.
I like the 3 electrode design on the Zex plugs as apposed to the single on the NGKs.

Hold on before you start buying plugs... If you go to rockingham, I'll give you my BKR7E plugs. I had them in for about 10 miles, but I personally didnt like the way they performed. Maybe It was just me, but I did go with the 5305 Iridium plugs, I seen a nominal difference in throttle response with them.

I'm curious to as in if these ZEX plugs are better. It's got 3 electrodes but (someone correct me if I'm wrong) the spark will only go to one.

The Zex plugs came in last night.

I'm going to install them this weekend. I'll let you know.

My NGKs are acting up. Studdering in the higher rpms.
How long have you had the ngk's in?? And also for everyone else I personally change my plugs every year regardless of time and miles i figure for less than 20 bucks and it takes ten mins to do it's like an oil change:D

I have had my NGKs in for a year now. Yeah colder plugs should be changed about once a year. So it's about that time for me.

I'm not a fan of the iridium plugs. I'd stick with the regular bkr7e's or go with the zex plugs.
Anything has to be better than platinum. But I think they will last longer than the copper plugs yet give the same result.
