Do you all have a torque for these or are most of you wrench/snug tight?

Most all spark plugs are COPPER CORE. Its the TIP that wears. I was not about to put a cheap nickel tipped plug back in. The COP 5.7 comes with a 100k Platiumn as does the 5.7 Hy bred and the 6.1. I used Autolite XP 5325 Iridium fine wire. Improved idle and fuel mileage. 5 year unlimited mileage warranty.They are COPPER CORE like all the many others that are. $6 something each on Amazon.com and go to the Autolite web site and print a $2.00 each plug rebate. I got back $32.00 withen the month. Fine wire plugs are used a lot in the aircraft industary. They are also said to keep carbon buildup to a minimum.

In my 09 I have been using platinum plugs since 45,000 change.

Sounds like the dealership I go to here in Michigan. Cookies, chips, pop (AKA: soda) gourmet coffee, etc. etc.

I just had service done, and couldn't be happier with the service I received.

I've got just over 100K on my Autolite XP5325 iridiums and running fine. I'll change them soon just because.

I have 75,000 miles on my truck. Plugs have never been replaced. Going to wait until 100,000k.
