I actually called honda dealer near me and they gave me a $20 a piece s/plug Quote over the phone and couldnt tell me if it was a laser type or not they just said it was of a iriduim type and wouldnt even give me a part # for comparison so these have to be better than hondas overpriced plugs.

Re: Replacing old S/Plugs with these.

Question for the Forum.?

Last set of S/plugs were changed out when the 8th gen was Younger,...kiding aside at 120.000 Canadian Kms according to records and yes i do Log everything down. but looking back Last spark plug change i used NGK TT's iriduim never used any ant-seize compound on threads - because i was hearing that ant-seize Formula has changed it no longer stayes on as a thick grey guee grease

like substance anymore, but instead dries up to a powdery paste like stuff on S/plugs that was Why i stayed away from using it (didnt want pieces of dried up paste like crap falling in spark/plug hole upon removal) instead i used a small dab of fresh engine oil on threads. as rec by a technition i talked to. has anyone had this experience with Anit-Seize compound .?

Re: Replacing old S/Plugs with these.

Those spark plugs actually may be the exact same as the OEM plugs. My google-fu tells me that Honda uses NGK IZFR6K-11S laser iridiums. Alternatively, Denso IK20s should work, too.

As far as your anti-seize question, I've had the same bottle of anti-seize for the better part of a decade now, which doesn't dry up as a powdery paste, but more like a thick toothpaste consistency when it comes time to take anti-seize-coated threads out. Thin layers and wiping off excess is the key to using the stuff

Re: Replacing old S/Plugs with these.

Mine turns into a toothpaste like consistency like RiceBoy said. Honestly I have never used it on spark plugs :-0. I don't on lug nuts either but I remove my wheel 2x a year so it's not an issue. Using a thin layer is best.

Re: Replacing old S/Plugs with these.

I've used it on both plugs and lugs, no issues. Spark plugs, I usually use a small dab in the middle of the threads and use my finger to spread it evenly. Usually don't go too close to the end of the threads (like 2mm above it).

Re: Replacing old S/Plugs with these.

Yeah they were actually Densos i no i said NGK TT"s but not what i thought was in there.
Actually they were very dry with a touch of white on the Tips probably due from using fuel Injector cleaner
in the past 5 years since they were in there. uther than that ok.!! I would Highly recommend NGK Preamuim Laser Iriduims well worth Paying the extra $ guys.

On these NGK Laser Iriduims that i put in i Never bothered useing anything on threads. because i read On CT"s web page that the S/Plug threads have a metal plating thats Anti-Corrosive and Anti-Seizing. all in all, Im Very happy with there Performance. Cheers...!

I thru away Just now the Anti-seize grey little can i had laying around in the garage Opened it Looked inside and seen a bunch of moisture water film residue build-up ended up throwing it in the garbage. i think Ron is absolutley right about using Anti-Seize it has changed its Formula its No Longer the same it use to be that i no anymore as well ? Listen to the Podcast 22:39 minutes into

what Ron Anannian Great Technition that I know by the way. discovers about using Anti-Seize On Spark Plug threads and How a vehicles Computer Can react to the change. on Just using Anti-Seize on S/Plugs threads ??
