Have had my truck for a little over 4 months and am wondering if there is a specific brand of spark plug that is recommended by TTORA members. Look at my sig to see engine type and I don;t have any kind of mods soooo . . . looking for performance and efficiency. Also, are there any recommendations for any kind of stock upgrade as far as wires/plugs/oil filters etc. (normal maintenance kinds of things) Already use Mobil 1 but thats it for upgraded fluids. Like I said anything you can think of . . . looking to run this truck as long and clean as I can. Thanks a lot.

i would personaly stick with the stock nippon's or either NGK plugs,they seem to work the best and are reasonably priced.oil fitlers and wires i would stay with the toyota oem.

I installed the Denso IK20's and have no problems with them. If your not going to do any more mods, the stock plugs will be fine.

NGK is what I use. Stay away from any platinum plug, Tacoma's don't seem to like them.

Fore wires/coil packs I been thinking about getting some magnecore wires. http://www.magnecor.com/magnecor1/main.htm

I email them about applications and prices the other day. I have 2002 3.6 tacoma.
The prices are:

Electrosports-70 7mm cable, part number 67216 - $90.64
Electrosports-80 8mm cable, part number 60216 - $92.99
KV85 8.5mm cable, part number 65216 - $125.82
KV85 CN series 8.5mm cable, part number 63216 - $132.11
R-100 10mm cable, part number 69216 - $160.06
R-100 CN series 10mm cable, part number 66216 - $168.07

For shipping costs, see the bottom of this e-mail.

This paragraph is automatically generated, so may refer to cable sizes that we do not manufacture the above sets out of :). Not all sets are available in all size cables. The 7mm (black) or 8mm (blue) cables should be fine for a standard unmodified engine, they have very similar constructions. The KV85 Competition 8.5mm (red) cable is intended for raced or modified engines - it is not just a bigger diameter cable, the KV85 8.5mm cable is a different product that has more capabilities for performance, suppression and heat resistance and can be used on ANY engine with no problems. The R-100 Racing 10mm (red) cable is the same basic cable as the 8.5mm and provides the same performance and suppression, but has a thicker jacket for more extreme temperature protection and insulation.

The "CN series" cables (which are not available for some applications) are special versions of our 8.5mm and 10mm cables that provide extra RFI suppression and are mainly intended for ham radio, CB radio and similar installations with unusual noise problems; the CN series cables do not help with most other applications and take longer to ship because CN series sets are always made to order - they are never in stock.



Plus they're red, a little color to the engine bay ;)
