What changes in FE & power can one expect

Hi,

Am not sure of exact prices but they are both in the 3-4k range. You are not going to see any noticeable change in both. thogh the diff will be there.

Definately as said would change the leads while changing the plugs. Of course if you have cash to do so then opt for performance leads. If not even change for a set of good leads would ok especially if your exisiting leads maybe a bit tired.

However may I also add that, upgrading the plugs and wires is NOT going to give you more horse power, but infact it reduces the LOST of horse power.

Although the Iridium works a treat especially if you drive it hard. The benefit of iridium is that they are more resist to the pollution to the plugs also withstand higher temperature then normal/ plantium plugs. And because of this you can argue that they can last longer too.

Default Change of wiring for spark plugs.

I want to change from stock spark plugs to iridium one. But one thing is not clear to me that if I do this than is it necessary to change wiring also?

Just for Iridium plugs i really dont think so, ie if the wires are in good shape. But if you are planning for high end after market coils also, then you might want to consider to upgrade the plugs.

I have changed the stock spark plugs to NGK Iridium Plugs (0.8) @Rs.625/= from MASS for my ALTO LXI. Vibrations and accelerations are slightly improved.
