Default Plugs...

So I'm gonna go from the Bosch Platinums to NGK Coppers. Looking at some sites I can't find Part#'s for coppers, only for platinum (since OE is platinum).

I think that part# BKR5E-11 for the V-Power plugs on a DOHC 2.5L is correct. Can anyone verify this? This is from the NGK site...

Thanks
-Aaron

Bosch = crapster for Subaru

NGKs are the OEM and the only ones you should be playing with. No matter what type NGKs you'll be fine.

Talking

Thanks for the input. So, I installed the BKR6E-11's today, and suddenly my car started running perfect. It had some hesitation, and some of the problems I was having a few months ago (When I replaced the plug wires) were getting worse. I threw the Bosch plat's out, and have been racing around town all afternoon.

Oh, and I have a small exhaust leak. Changing the plugs somehow quieted that down . Noticed a good increase in power, and the car is so smooth now. I don't think it's ever run this good.

Wheeeeeeeeeeee!

-Aaron

Edit: These are the copper core V-power plugs. I had to call a couple of places to find them in stock, but you can order them anywhere.
