I'm running iridium Ngk's, they work great for me and i'm posting up some great numbers with them. Currently @ 200 miles and 3/4 tank

How long has it been since your cap/rotor/plug wires have been replaced?

Valves been adjusted recently?

And just so you know, its not that hard to switch to a manual 5 speed


70 mpg or die modding

It's only been about a month +/- since I changed the plugs,cap and rotor. I didn't change the wires as the cheapest set I found were like $160... for 4 wires!!! What?

I have no idea when the valves were last adjusted but I'm sure their due( and a new timing belt to boot).

Unfortunately a 5 spd is out of the question as my girl can't drive a stick. She might get her own car yet lol.
