whoever told u NGK was better is correct

91 se-r : sr20det= the beast
96 sentra : ga16de= pimpness
00 frontier : ka24de= tow truck
01 sentra : gq18de= stock mofo

Definitely the NGK plugs are better for Nissan's. They are know to cause misfire problems on some cars. I made the mistake, when I bought my Nissan to run Spitfire Plugs for 30,000, AC Delco Rapidfires for 30,000. Car did not run right until I installed stock NGK plugs. I bought into the advertising hype. Hopefully you will not have problems.

Truth alone triumphs, not untruth. :)

NGK are the best, Denso (Nippondenso) is a VERY close runnerup.
Only those two types should be used for Toy, Nissan, or Honda.
Bosch, Champion, etc. are made for US vehicle specs, don't work well on the imports.
I usually get the Densos because I can get them easily (and cheaply) at Autozone or the like.

bkr6e's or regualr dealership ngk's works great. there are like 8 bucks for a set of four from courtesy nissan. although if you go to the dealership they will try to sell you the PFR6B-11 which are the NGK platinums for an arm and a leg. courtesy nissan also has a great deal on those. the dealership here tried to sell them to me for 25 bucks a piece!!!...so the answer is yes, NGK from what i have read are the best.

mmph! Slight correction. Champion plugs are stock Nissan plugs oversees. They are even listed in the European owners manuals for the SR20.. as stock.

I've always used NGK Iridium IX plugs cuz anytime I try something else I am dissapointed. However, the last time I bought plugs(1 week ago), they said the NGK Iridium IX plugs were $7 a plug and NGK Iridium Laser(I thats what it sounded like) were $10 a plug. Not sure what the "laser" ones are like. Hopefully someone on here knows something about them.

Yeah, what he said Iridiums are the best, I got mine from ebay for $24.95 shipped that was a year and half ago. you pull one of of my engine and it looks brand new after almost two years. Bosch plugs suck....lol fire in the hole = that's when the platinum electrode worns out

It's funny Mex Sentras came with NGK's, owners manual listed Champion part n° & dealerships have NGK's so....

Nissan Mexico is NGK's (Owners Manual also had mistakes )
