Gee, do what I did years ago, call NGK and ask for test support. They will tell you what to use. You can get there toll free number from the web site.

It's real easy to call most of the manufactures and ask for help.

what I mean is that I have to replace this plugs every 1000k. so they dont last long. last time i took the car to the Dyno they replace the spark plugs and they last a good amount of time but the ones i just got they are already giving me problems and i just replace these plugs about a month ago or 1000k.

Danz thanks for the reply. the NGK BKR7E's are the ones im using right now. i will try another set. what do you think it would happen if i try 2 steps colder??

thanks

Don't used R5671A's with Hondata, it doesn't like the noise.
