how do you feel about autolites in hondas steve?
They've got cheapie copper cores like the v-powers, but are even cheaper.

porcelains crack all the time on autolite's. I've seen cases where we put new plugs in a car, 2 weeks later it comes back with a mis and it was caused by a faulty plugs. I hate auto lites.. they are more pos than italfag

i've never personally used them, but guy i know who's pretty big into hondas (had some serious turbo setups) said he's swears by autolites.
I'll stick with my NGK v-powers, they've yet to fail me on any car i've used them on.

what you paid for 1 set of spark plugs, buys like 3 sets of the NGK v-powers, and the NGKs are better plugs IMO.

i use BKR6E-11's in pretty much any honda. But i'm pretty sure thats the exact plug called for on the d16z6. If not, grab em anyways, i've used them on plenty of Z6's.

on the boosted cars and higher WHP n/a cars i've had good sucess with the v-power race plugs (#R5671A-7, -8 and -9's) but i've yet been able to find anyone that can get these for me locally, so i picked up a bunch of them last time i was in the states.
But for the rest of the cars i do, the BKR6E-11 and BKR7E-11's work good as well.

just put the ngk-v powers in my civic, always used then in all my civics. never had a problem.
also i just bought the car with blown head gasket and dirty as **** oil, basically wasn't tooooo maintained (missed out on the little stuff i guess).

anywho swapped in a new head gasket , formula one synthetic oil 10w30, ngk v powers and she past with flying colors. also that swith the quarter tank of fuel i pick the car up with. so i dunno about your little theory about failing etests lol.
