Exclamation NGK Copper Spark Plugs… BKR6E or BKR5E?

To All:

I went to Pep Boys & they recommended BKR6E for my 02 OBS while Cobb suggests BKR5E? What are the differences between the two? Which one are y’all using???

Thanks,
~Steven

BKR6E is the stock replacement plug. BKR5E is a slightly hotter plug.

Edit - Actually, both BKR6E and BKR5E are specified for the 2.5L

The following has a link at the bottom of the page that explains NGK's plug numbering system
