It runs perfectly on standard NGK. Others here have paid extra money for the Iridiums and it actually didn't run as well (poorer mileage). So don't waste the money, just get the base NGK's and it will run perfectly.

Yup, standard NGK are copper, and copper gives a "better" spark, just don't last as long as platinum and iridium.
