Spark Plug Brands

G'day all, just wondering if anyone has and thoughts on what are better or worse Spark Plug Brands? With out going in to the expensive stuff, just in the regular type plug. Years ago it seemed Champion were the only plug for the high performance user, but something must of happen along the way as they are now in Australia seen as the cheaper, low quality plug. Denso now seems to be the plug of choice and NGK as the standard higher quality. You don’t seem to here much about AC Delco Plugs but I think there one of higher quality plugs. What are most of you guy’s using in your V8’s.

Re: Spark Plug Brands

I use NGK's, champion went bad some years ago, and havent really made it back up into the market.
I've had trouble with Bosch plugs, basically they wont ignite a rich mixture as well as the ngk's

Motorcraft plugs are the same as denso's i think??
I havent used motorcraft ones since i had my XE, that was years ago, i think they were remarked champions back then?

Re: Spark Plug Brands

Denso, NGK or Autolite for me... mainly NGK though.
Wont touch Champion or Bosch any more. used to be good but nowdays they arent so good.

Motorcraft used to be Denso's but im not sure if they still are, they were great plugs too.

Re: Spark Plug Brands

I run NGK Iridium at the moment, they are good but fairly expensive. Have also used the standard NGK's and they were good too.
