hey guys what's the deal with the plugs on this car? apparently they have an inline resistor? what does it do? why does it have it and what happens if you were to say put in a super coil and whatever iridiums that are gonna fit? would it cause any problems? is it like a noise problem or something that arises?

before the hocus pocus kicks in,
the stock NGK plugs and ignition system is excellent for almost all applications.
robust, works well and should be your LAST area of wasted money.

ok that's great but I prefer to know why it's not a good idea to start playing with that rather than taking everybody at their word. I just wanna know why and what will happen if...

well, why would be because:

it's robust,

why would be because:
it works well

why would be because:

the stock system is excellent out of the box (for almost all applications)

that's why.

Unless you have 20psi of boost I don't see why you'd want to replace anything.

Iridium plugs have resistors in them too. They're meant to last longer but they don't do anything more than that... last longer... and cost more. stick with normal plugs...

alright sounds good, but the big question I had is that when I went to look up parts for this car it showed that there was some kind of a resistor on the plugs. any idea what it's for? I'll take your guys advice and stay stock, I wasn't necessarily worried about doing it up, I was just curious why it's the way it is and what that resistor does for the plug.

just a question guys, I'm not gonna go out and upgrade everything (at least not before knowing if it even is an upgrade for one), just wanna know how it works, that's all. thanks for the advice though.

*edit

sorry just saw your little explanation of the resistor there. I guess it makes sense. thanks then, didn't mean to beat a dead horse, just kinda wanted to nkow what the deal was. also a little perplexed as to why they'd make a point of noting that the plugs have resistors in them. ah well. thanks again.

The resistor is for radio noise suppression - you can purchase plugs without them.

BP6RES have the resistor, BP6ES don't.
