Spark plugs for AU XR6

Ok, need some recommendations for new spark plugs for the AU XR6. I have no clue whats good or bad. I would like to get a "colder" set than standard though.

Please help!

Re: Spark plugs for AU XR6

i use bosh HDs atm, they do a damn nice job

i experimented with the splitfires, but found that they are useless ... they sit way too far into teh head that the spark doesnt really gets into teh combustion chamber. als teh theory with twin spark is nice but doesnt work tht way

I wouldnt touch Bosch plugs myself, be best to go for NGK, Champion or Genuine. If you can get Iridium Tipped NGK's are very good but a bit dearer although they will last longer.

NGK's website list the replacement for ZGR 6B-11 in Iridium tipped to be BPR6EIX-11 although for 12/00 on AUII/AUIII NGK list IGR5C13 which im guessing is iridium tipped going by the I
