Truer words have never been spoken...
Those Bosch platinum plugs they sell for domestic and Japanese cars tend to explode in the cylinder. For some reason they are really bad when installed in Chrysler products, they tend to not even last a month. It's a running joke in my shop when a vehicle comes in for a poor run and we find Bosch plugs installed...
The Champion plug in my riding mower is likely 40 years old and still fires. Yay me!!
Too bad the techs in the service department get raped by an outdated and unfair pay system..... but that's a topic for another thread.
I'm sure @Knuckle Dragger and @MrAzzhat2U would agree with me 1000% on that.....
The set I have in my 04 v6 Nissan Frontier have been in there since 08 with about 50k on them. About due for replacement...with Bosch Platinums.
When I worked for a local Pontiac dealer they would throw away all kinds of new never opened stuff. I found new Plugs all the time. I was actually pulling bumper covers with such slight damage it was crazy. I would get them and resell them. The local bumper repair shop would pick the trash all the time. They did the same thing.
I don't think I ever ran Bosch plugs, but I've been running Champion plugs for a long long time in almost everything. My old 99 Durango ran like crap on anything but Champion. It was a known... feature? that the 318 and 360 magnum engines would only run good with Champions. I've kinda stuck with them ever since. Got them in the 454 in the dooley and also in the 454 in the Camaro.
1st NAPA is usually the Highest Priced and comparing prices with them is easy.
RockAuto doesn't have the Overhead that NAPA does
