What’s Putting the Spark in your Engine

Modern vehicles have years of research and design that goes into them.  Components are specifically designed to suit each engine’s individual requirements, even the spark plug is engineered to perfectly match the engines unique characteristics.

When spark plugs are commonised for the aftermarket, important attributes are often compromised and this can have a big effect on engine output, reliability, and fuel efficiency, so it’s important to fit the right plug for your vehicle. 

Research has found that installing a spark plug that is not specifically designed for the engine in which it is being installed can result in some pretty serious side effects, the biggest of which is the heat range. If the spark plug is too cold then carbon fouling can become a problem, while if the spark plug is too hot pre-ignition can occur that can cause serious engine damage.
