What new sparkplugs to get?

So the time has come to change the plugs, first time for this, and Ive been doing alot of reading. I hear from some people(gearbox and others) that the stock plugs are the best. I dont really want to spend more money on Denso IK-20's if they arent going to do anything. Help me out

stock double platinum is better than iridium. I tried the iridium for 15k and they were done after that. You wanna know a secret they don't tell you? The iridium doesn't even have a platinum ground electrode, its prolly just nickel like the cheap autozone plugs. Double platinum has both center and ground electrode platinum (hence the name and why they can last MUCH longer than any other plug out there).
