Default spark plugs

hey i went to get a set of spark plugs an the same thing always happens. They say that there are none listed for the EJ25 SOHC.
Will the same spark plugs for the EJ25D work?

And i was thinking about getting NGK BKR6EiX11 iridium spark plugs.

Side note what is a good set of wires that will go with these?

Don't bother with iridium...just get standard copper v-power. You can get them from summitracing.com Also, another well discussed topic is plug wires. Magnecor makes a set. You don't really notice anything performance wise from these.

I just go with the standard copper V-power plugs. They are easy enough to change every 30K miles, you don't need anything fancy. Expensive spark plugs won't give you any magic horsepower boost. I don't know about the Irridiums, but platinum plugs are for cars with plugs that are impossible to change (i.e. any transverse mounted FWD V-6 or V8) IMO.

I run the NGK V-power plugs and won't use anything else.

As an experiment I used three different plugs in my wifes 2000 Nissan Altima on a 3000 mile trip we took to Oregon. The car comes stock with NGK platinums. For this I used Bosch Twin's, Bosch Singles and then NGK Platinums that look an awful like the V-powers. Engine had oil change and fresh air filter and fuel filter.

The Bosch twins were awful. The power was way down, gas mileage went way down and when I pulled them out at our first stop they were a very sooty black. Those are going back to Bosch. They claim more power. I claim not. Atleast in this application.

The Bosch singles were much better. Power was almost back and gas mileage was much better. Pulled them out at our second stop and the were a very light sooty black. Not bad.

NGK Plat's were great. Power was back to normal, gas mileage was great and when I pulled them back at home they were a nice ash color.

For her car I now swear by NGK.

You can get the copper NGK plugs at any Napa, my local one has them in stock, as the application is shared with a couple other mainstream cars. Kragen/Shucks, or any place that carries NGK can order them, no sweat.

Actually, if I recall correctly subie's come with a "stronger" ignition system and that is why platinums are listed as spec for the cars because it is too much for the copper's. Very well could be mistaken, but just my 2 cents.

I have NGK plats on my car and they work fine.

Yep. Mine came stock with Champions.

Copper is a much better conductor than platinum, just doesn't last as long.
