    B235L spark plugs

    OK, I'm confused about which plugs to get for my '04 9-5 Arc

    The FAQ states NGK BCPR 6H-11's

    NGK Canada and NAPA only list the following;

    G-Power Platinum (more info)
    Part No. Stock No. Plug Gap Note Full Tip BCPR6EGP 7088 0.039 View

    Iridium IX (more info)
    Part No. Stock No. Plug Gap Note Full Tip BCPR6EIX-11 4919 0.039 View

    Laser Series (more info)
    Part No. Stock No. Plug Gap Note Full Tip PFR6H-10 6290 0.039 View

    Which would be suitable?

    The BCPR6ES is the new standard spark plug for the B235L engine. This is also the plug the US website lists for this engine. From what I remember, the BCPR 6H-11 is not manufactured anymore. For Canada, the BCPR6EGP seems to be the regular plug for your engine.

    I usually trust the eEuroparts recommendation.
    eEuroparts - Spark Plug - # BCPR6ES

    The PFR6H-10 is recommended for the Aero engine. I don't think it would hurt to use those in the B235L but they are expensive (US$11 each).

    ok, replaced the plugs, and I have to say it was the easiest plug replacement I've ever done :-)

    The plugs I pulled out were NGK PFR6H-10's which I'm assuming were the original plugs. They look pretty fresh tho, so I will assume they were replaced to try and stop the missfire code.

    I've popped some NGK BCPR6EY-11's in as it was all I could fine in my local store....they seem to work anyway, lets just see if my missfire code returns or not.

    When I bought my 2.3t Vector (b235e) , I didn't know that it had a stage 1 maptun remap (185bhp to 235bhp), and it was running with platinum plugs. Would the upgrade require the platinum plugs, or should I switch them out for the recommended bcpr6es-11?

    For what it is worth, the number after the plug type is the pre-set electrode gap in 1/10 mm. So NGK BCPR 6ES-11 is a BCPR6ES with a pre-set gap of 1.1mm.
    If the plug you want isn't available with the required pre-set gap simply by a general plug e.g. BCPR6ES, and set the gap manually using a d
    feeler gauge.
