Default Sourcing Spark Plugs

What is a good source for the indexed plugs for the Gen 1? I tried Majestic and a couple of other internet sites but only sound the A plugs on one site. I need the C plug.

Thanks Eli,

I'm a dummy. I didn't realize that spark plugs could only be found under the heading "ignition coil." But not to worry, I always have a friend to help on IC.

I wouldn't say you are a dummy. Majestic's website is goofy in that you have to know what group something is in and you can't search for a specific part or part number. I was looking for the underbody panels recently and couldn't find them anywhere because they were listed in, get this...the "front fender" section. Is it just me or does that not seem like where underbody/aero panels should be? At any rate, now I'll know where to look for my "B" plugs in another 90K miles or so.

And the strakes are shown under "Bumpers".

I'm still trying to figure out where #5, 6 & 7 mount on the fender drawings. Of course having my face 2" from everything doesn't help in identifying parts while I'm under the car.

Sorry for the hijack but not counting #9 in the fender drawing, how many removable aero panels are there? I only can find 2 listed in the all the drawings. Is there a panel located between #12 & #17? If so I sure can't find it in the drawings. As you can tell my car is missing some panels under the front end.

Default Honda plugs worth it?

Has anyone found a real world improvement with the factory spark plugs over the non-indexed aftermarket ones?

No actual "scientific" proof. Just "seat of the pants" conclusion. For a complete burning process and mainly for emissions, stay with the OEMs.

Is there a age requirement on these plugs also? As my car in a 2003 (10yrs old) but only has 60k miles? Maybe it wouldnt be a bad idea for me to change them this spring with the next oil change?
