Question Re: 2006-Up Pt Cruiser Spark Plug Removal.

I'm not trying to step on anyone's toe's here i just wanted to add my two cent's and ask a question.

So after reading almost the entire thread i learned about why platinum plugs are better and that little trick with the old wires. But i wanted to say that you don't have to do that if your fortunate enough to a spark plug socket which comes with built in rubber that helps you pull out the plug once it's fully untightened.

And secondly, i was wondering if anyone knows if anyone makes performance wires and ignition coil? idk if msd does, but if i'm going to take all that time taking off the intake mani i'm gonna wanna upgrade everything having to do with the plugs.

First, you don't need a different coil, waste of money. Even the guys who are running almost 300hp are using the same OEM coil that the cruiser came with.

Lots of good/great plugs out there on the market. Probably all of them better that the OEM wires the PT came with. You can even stick with MOPAR wires is you get the MOPAR Performance set. That's what I have in mine and it's been 56,000 miles since I changed them last without a problem. Starts right up first turn every time.

I'm also using the Champion Double Platinum #7570 with a gap of .040 in a non-turbo.

Thanx for the advise. So i guess the platinum plugs gapped at .040 and new wires will be enough.

Regular copper plugs will do, it's just that Platinum should last you longer so you don't have to go through the change for 50+ thousand miles.

Crewzin Knows!!

Do NOT change out your coil. With my race tune I'm pushing 322 hp at the crank, 325 lb ft of torque. On a dyno, at WOT in third gear, without juicing, my coil never misses a beat. Hundreds of laps on the track, hours running up and down mountain roads here on the Blue Ridge and never a flicker.

Everyone I know who has replaced their coil regrets it. As to wires though, the Granatelli's, in my opinion, can not be beat, but almost any plug wires are better than the factory wires. Those are a total POS...
