[DML] Re: spark plugs/brake fluid 3 vs. 4

If you have a stock engine (excludes turbos and other mods that would 
change internal characteristics except exhaust - that probably 
doesn't change much), the only "choice" I can think of in spark plugs 
is the brand. Which ever plug you pick it should cross reference with 
the OEM Bosch HR6DS. Anything else, in my opinion, is asking for 
trouble. The "S" refers to a silver based tip, "P" is platinum, 
and "C" is copper. I have had good luck with either Silver or 
Platinum - Silver is my personal preference. 

My last tune-up I went for DMCH's NOLOGY kit. It has silver plugs 
similar to the OEM but the wires and amp are supposed to kick up the 
spark punch, etc. The real benefit I noticed with the NOLOGY is more 
punch at the 4-6,000 rpm range. My car is an auto and the quicker 
high-end revs make it more fun to drive.

The "6" plug is a good mid range operating temp plug - you should not 
stray from that unless you are into serious mods, etc. and/or know 
what to look for in changing the plug operating temp range.
