Honda Accord 2000 ex coupe
Short Ram Intake
17" rims with V-rated sports tires.
10.3mm spark wires.
Soon to be lowered 1" for the spring time.
Denso for all import applications except honda... for honda u use NGK ONLY!!!!!!! and none of that freaking 4 point retarded STUFF... Also refrencing ur plugs wont do anything on a 4 valve.. only a 2 valve... if ur worried about power of ur spark... a Capacitive Discharge System from MSD is amazing
2003 Honda Accord 4 door I4 5 speed
I am doing an experimentation right now and have gapped my plugs to 0.030" (from 0.042" stock).
"Get NGK V-power plugs and set the spark plug gap to 0.030 for best results. Or close your wide factory gap by .020-.030. Use dielectric grease on your plugs and in the plug wire boots and on the metal contacts. Silicone spray is okay but the grease is better because the next time you remove the boots, it is possible to rip the cables and damage the wires to introduce a missing condition in the ignition. It is also a good idea to put anti-seize on the plug threads. Champion and AC plugs have tremendous resistance levels that simply waste spark energy. Measure the resistance for yourself. Please use compressed air to blow out dirt from around the plugs BEFORE you remove them. Otherwise dirt falls into the cylinders and causes rapid ring wear. I use fish hook extractor pliers to grab my plugs in and out of a deep hole. Be sure your plug cables are like new by viewing the ignition system on a scope if possible. Replace cables if older than five years with NGK or Federal wires. With a tighter gap, voltage is less but amperage is much greater. Amps mean HEAT and that is what fires the air-fuel mixture, not voltage. The more heat, the better the ignition and mileage. Ordinary wires should be replaced every 50,000 miles. It is best to use NGK V-power or get Bosch Super spark plugs as they have the proper (lower) resistance levels. Some AutoLite plugs have a lower resistance and are okay. But ALWAYS check the plug resistance to be sure it does not exceed 7000 ohms. Please ignore most mechanics opinions about plugs. For instance we avoid platinum and iridium plugs because people tell us their cars do not run as well. We pay close attention to what people tell us about their actual results. Remember mileage and power go together."
