Don't you think Honda knows what spark plugs give the best performance?

I am constantly amazed at people who can own this car and not realize what an amazing feat of engineering Honda has accomplished. The plugs in this engine last 105,000 miles while helping to produce 120 HP per liter, Yet you ask laymen on this forum for reccomendations on your plugs (like we would know better than the enginners who won 7 Formula 1 championships).

Just replace them earlier with the stock plugs if you feel the need.

Jeeez!

Ok not that I am arguing either way but just so we are clear on this, just because it is recommended at 100,000+ miles doesn't mean it shouldn't be replaced before then. It can not harm you to replace them. Additionally, anyone interested in supercharging or modifying their car should always check their spark plugs for signs of proper air/fuel mixture (guys with the FPR).

Your location is interesting, but I believe that Seattle is where the World Series will be played this year!

With the Mets up 3-1 and the Yanks up 3-2 I figured at minimum I had a 50% chance of getting that right I think the Subway Series is more likely at this point. By the way Everett was definetly over the batter's box line.

Everett was just "way over the line" this year. The dilemma that we have in Boston is if it is a subway series, who do we root against!

It must suck to be a sports fan in Boston this year with the Red Sox (done), Patriots (almost done), Celtics (Pitino's last year?), and Bruins (1 line no goalies -espn). Meanwhile we have the Mets, Yanks, Jets (5-1), Giants (5-2), Knicks (weak conference without Zo), Rangers (ok not much better than the Bruins but better), Islanders (they suck).
