    Nope. Check the NGK site. They show the 7 as our stock plug. I have a set of them in my car as we speak. They work just fine.

    The stock plugs in my car were not 7s. They were 6s. I put the trix7 in there with no problems.

    Oops, didn't mean to sound jerky like that.

    That is what I thought so I called NGK when I was still with StreetSide and they said the stock replacement were 7's...... Maybe they changed their mind?

    Go Figure.

    Re: spark plugs

    Mine are a little tighter than that from when I had the turbo on it. It was blowing spark out at only 17psi so I put the gaps at 25. I'd change them back to 35 but they are a pain to get out of there just for that.
