FloridaRam is on a distinguished road
Default 12 1500 4.7L tune up

Hey guys I'm starting to look into my preventative maintenance for my Ram for down the road and wondering what you guys have done for a tune-up on your vechicles? What type of plugs should I use with the mods I have does it matter? I have an K&N Intake, Cat back exhaust, ported throttle body, and a BD tuner. Thank you for all your help! Also these trucks have 16 plugs total? Sorry I'm coming from a ford so this is all new to me!

I went with stock plugs. I had the tranny fluid and filters done, rear diff, PCV valve, and spark plugs done. it all depends on mileage though so check your owners manual. also power steering and brake fluid. Again, all based on mileage

Best to follow the schedule for maintenance in the manual.

Unless you get to the point of big mods like cams, head work, nitrous, turbo/super charged, etc. stick with stock plugs. They are pretty specific for the engine. You do have 16. The 8 intake side are basically a copper plug, the 8 exhaust side are basically an iridium plug.
