Champion? Eeeeek! I would not run those if they were free. But I think they are OEM which bothers me knowing they may be in my engine already (I feel dirty now). I will run NGK's if I can find them, but Denso Premium MFG Part# 5343 or Autolite #APP5325 if I can't.

Go with the Champions or an NGK equivalent. I tend to avoid Autolites unless I have no other choice.

I've always had the best luck with NGK.
But I would like to see what came stock?

Why in the world do they have a 32k interval on replacing the spark plugs? Every other vehicle I have owned has a 100k interval.

It's 50,000km (north of the border) for the 5.7 according to the 2010 scheduled maintenance guide.

Its listed as 32000 mile maintenance for US. I just find it odd that it is so few miles when any other (new) vehicle I have owned is 100k miles.

Always go with what the factory puts in. The problem with people is they put different spark plugs in vehicles that weren't designed for it, and they wonder why the vehicle runs like crap, and they say champions suck, which they dont by the way. Chrysler has been running champions for decades and decades. Stick to what they install. just my 2 cents
