Couldn't find anything seraching.

Does anybody know what spark plugs we need for our 1.6 Si's?

And how many miles should they do before changing them?

Cheers

Dunno about how often, I've never kept a car long enough to have to change them more than once. I get the car, change them and then get rid afterwards. haha.

Go to Halfords and have a nose at their flip cards and see which ones you need. They're the same price as everyone else. think Si ones are ?18.99 Plantinum tipped things. 8-)

best spark plugs by far are DENSO IRIDIUM, though theyre like 40 quid for a set of four theyre definately worth it.

I will add I have just got a set of the Denso Iridium plugs for mine.

Cost me ?46 after in total.

To make it easier for anybody else you need the Denso-ITV16 which will fit most zetecs (just checked fiesta and mondeo engines 1.6-2.0 all ok)

What differences do you have by using these, if any?

Smoother? Quicker?

Well apranttly a bigger spark for less voltage which can give better running, more power and better fuel usage.

But there is another reason i have them as they is a certain perfomance mod coming to my car soon which requires these plugs. :wink:
