Default Plugs for VTEC

I checked out my car at the dealership and they told me I have reg, spark, so I am thinking about putting the laser platinums in or iridium which ones are better? For vtec, and will it make VTEC kick in harder???

as for brands, NGK have always been my favorite, but in all honesty it probably wont matter all that much if you already have good spark.

Well, it won't suddenly make your VTEC kick like a turbo, but you will notice a difference just in pickup.

Yeah I know that just a little hard pick up is good enough though, I saw some of the NGK plugs for VTEC, I just thought it would help it out better,

plugs are only gonna make power where the stock ones are wearing out. unless your having problems with cylinder pressures blowing out the spark (like in high boost apps) then there is only very very minimal gains in plugs. its more about them being new than better. but you might as well get the platinums at least. and many iridiums wear out really fast. some are made for longetivity (like the ones Toyota specifies for their cars) and some are made for high power apps. just get the plats for 1/3 the price.
