Hi,
Pick up splitfire plug leads for your car. Also plugs the HKS Iridium is pretty good. Filters are plenty just tell them the model and they will give you one. Direct fit into the oem box. Else get an oval tapered or round one for custom fitting which will yeild more power and better looks under the hood .

cheers

Dom,

I have someone really close going to the States soon. I can ask them to pick up any mods for the Vtec.

Quick question, and I know its a long shot. My warranty will be cancelled if I upgrade to after-market sparks, exhaust and a cold air intake?

If you change your exhaust, I'm sure thats gonna violate your warranty, but spark plugs?? no way. 50/50 on the intake though, depends on how nice the dealers r!

In order to save you guys some time - did some research on spark plugs for the vtec. The Iridium ones that fit are:

Denso IK 16
NGK IFR5J11

Need to find a place in Singapore (and the time) to pick them up - anyone know where ? Also do leads really make a difference ?

Hey Ajmat,

I have some issues with changing sparkplugs to splitfires etc etc....iridium im not sure about if there is a downside...but do some solid unbiased research before making the switch.
Simply put, the leads do make a difference!
