    Default NGK Iridiums for 3.2

    I have got my plugs this morning: NGK Iridium IX part no. BKR5EIX

    I have read posts on here about wrong plugs etc.

    Are these correct for my 3.2?

    Don't want them hitting the pistons etc?

    This may or may not be helpful http://forum.vectra-c.com/showthread...ighlight=denso

    Then have a look on the Global Denso website and they do iridium plugs for the Z32 lump. I've serached for NGK Iridiums and I don't think they do the EXACT plug for the Z32.

    I think your second post is more likely to be your answer.

    I struggled to find NGK iridium plugs for my 3.2 Elite last year so instead i went for the Denso iridium plugs got a set of 6 for £46 all in from Euro Car Parts which i think is a bit of a bargain ...............P.s they are a crackin plug as well almost eliminated the flat spot these engines seem to suffer from !!!!

    Back in a V6 !!!!!!!!!!!! And lovin it !!!

    Take one of the old ones out and compare it to your new ones if its the same length etc it will be fine.

    Default Update to Iridiums

    I have been on the phone to NGK today and the NGK Iridiums DO fit the 3.2.

    The part number is BKR5EIX

    Hope that helps you all!
