I bought a very detailed Service manual ( its got 2000 pgs. If anyone is interested, list your e-mail then i'll send it to ya.I have it in pdf file. It is for all engine models and chassis models, including jettas, golfs, 2.0, 1.8t, 1.9 TDI, etc) and listed under routine maintenance is the replacemement of the spark plugs at 60k intervals. Im at 57k right know, so its almost time.

Is there a way I can "upgrade" my plugs? get more performance out of them? what are some good brands?

tks

does anyone know what i can do to a 2002 automatic gls with no turbo? i was thinking a ECU, catback, and a short ram intake. I can get the short ram for $80. I found a PCD performance chip online for $80 and its suppose to add 50 HP. Im new to VW's and need advice, why are people telling me chips are like $300?

first of all,I dont mean to be rude but your questions are off topic. There are a few threads about your question. I'd suggest you to cruise through the forum and read up a little aight?
All I have to say is :be careful with ebay/google searches. On turbo engines, no reputable chip is less than $350-500. On aspirated engines, u can find cheaper ones, but it will not give you 50 hp. 10, 20hp at the most.

I think we have told u before: sell your automatic and get a 5 spd. Its a lot more fun and then you can mod it all you want with no worries.

Back to spark plugs, anyone with more inputs?

About the manual, Im at work right know. I'll try to send it during the weekend.

NGK's BKR7E's ftw. In a 1.8T chipped, gap to .028, stock gap to .032.

Its a colder plug than the stockers... They work very well, and are only about $2 a piece.

Expensive plugs are unncessary, and in some cases, decrease the performance of your engine!

Should be able to get them at autozone/advanced... Atleast NAPA I would think, I forgot where I got mine.

They're wicked easy to install... Unplug your coil packs, pull em' out, and your spark plugs are right there. Torque to 22 ft/lbs or just guess it. Having them too loose is WAY better than too tight. Last thing you wanna do is break off a plug while the threads are still in the head of the engine.

Gap is VERY important, so if you don't have feeler gauges (autozone, $5) then buy some.

you can upload the pdf file on free fileshare websites such as megaupload.com or zshare.com or rapidshare.com and post the download link here. This way you won't have to send individual copies to every one.
