I always use NGK's in Subes and other imports. They are excellent plugs, and cost about the same as other "standard" grade plugs.
The Bosch Plats seem ok to me too, but I've heard others trash them. They are probably overated for the price.

Just wondering, what does NGK stand for?

I had autolite in an old datsun 210 when I first bought it as well and it really made a difference with a new set of NGK as well.
there is another use for champion plugs. Chrysler products like them. They can actualy set codes if you run something else. I see it at work on our fleet vehicles.

I installed Bosch Plat. +4s (sp?) in my '93 Legacy L last summer. This partly because I am a newbie at DIY and I did not feel like causing a FUBAR by mis-gapping the plugs. Anyway, the car runs fine with plenty of power and acceleration. However, my mileage has taken a nose dive from 30+ to about 24 MPG. That seems to be somewhat of a consensus among other postings in this forum; the Plat. +4s increase fuel use. Am I doing harm by keeping these plugs in or should I swap them out for some plain coppers at my earliest opportunity?

Oh, in cars?
Nope........well maybe when I was a kid.

Checked the FSM and it says to "never use champion plugs for spfi models." just a thought, there was a debate a while back on what to use, it looks like they came from the factory with NGK's
thats all i have to say
