      Spark Plugs - NGK V-Power Good?

      Howdy,

      Its time for a tune-up! Are the NGK V-power any good? Getting them from Oreily in an attempt to get stuff done quickly while I have the time...

      I think they are good but the Volvo 5-cylinder engine does not seem to like anything but OEM Volvo plugs.

      what are the OEM volvo plugs? Bosch? I'm using the NGK V-power ones for now (the ones Viva recommended for a tuned car).

      I can definitely vouch for this. I was running NGK Iridiums previously, but the OEM Bosch plugs just seem to be the best choice.
