No measurable benefit. Snake oil salesmen will claim otherwise. Stick with what's in it.
For forced induction, the plugs will be a different temp range, but if you're stock, leave it alone.

This...


When you see claims that spark plugs can make up to XXhp, there was something wrong with the ignition system that received the "better" spark plugs. Fancy spark plugs are gimmicks and provide no extra hp...just a lighter wallet. If the factory saw any benfiet to them to increase power and fuel efficiency, they would have used them. They saw benifiets form platinum plugs for the longer life...so they started to use them.

AC/Delco brand is excellent. To use any other is totally unnecessary.

At 85,000 miles I installed Autolite OEM-style plugs. They seem to work as well as the OEM AC Delcos. Just figured it was time for new ones.

Stock ones are fine and good for 100K. I plan to change them sooner than that maybe at 75K but will be using the same brand that is from the factory.
