I replaced mine with the OEM and performance was the same. If you think there is a plug out there that will give you better performance let me print off another copy of the tittle for the Golden Gate Bridge. Stick with denso or NGK.

I agree. I did the same and replaced mine with Denso's.

Deal on the Prop. trade. There is non to be made from plugs on a Tundra. Save your quarters and get some headers they are the best bang for the buck.

When I had my 2000 Tundra V-8 serviced at a dealer for the 120K service, they put the Tacoma V-6 plugs in my truck. I didn't realize it until the temps dropped below freezing and I could barely get my truck started. So I decided to start doing as much maintenance on my truck as possible instead of taking it to a dealer. I decided to try the NGK Laser Platinum plugs, and they have been working fine so far (40K miles). I really don't think they work better than a copper Denso or NGK, but they definitely work better than a Tacoma plug in the V-8. I decided to try the Platinum instead of the copper to extend the life of the plug. That means less plug changes for me, which is a good thing! I'll probably take a look at them after 60K to see if they need changed yet.

IF you need plugs, use the expensive Iridium's. My 2005 D/C took the NGK 4589's and I gapped them at .043
At 60 something thousand miles when I replaced the OEM plugs the OEM's still looked brand new. But I had already bought the new ones, so......... I may never change plugs on that truck again now.
I guess I'm just saying that if you have a LOT of miles on your original plugs change them. I wouldn't expect to feel much of any difference.

I run the NGK Iridium #BKR6EIX plugs. They retail at $6-$7 ea. I like them. In all honesty, the stock Densos would probably do me fine as well, but I invested in the performance consistency & longevity. I'll change them at about 40,000 miles. Don't forget a little application of anti-seize on the threads.

That's the same plug I just bought for my Sequoia (BKR6EIX), and I did notice the engine idled smoother but no performance gain. The NGK website claims better fuel economy, but I haven't noticed any difference from the stock plugs.
