The only place, apparently, is at a Toyota dealership. I got my Denso IK22's from the city toyota delaership for about 85 bucks for 4.
I think toyota are the distributors.

Its the huge dealership near Moore Park/ Alexandria. (Sydney City Toyota i think)
I put them in myself.
few things.
-plugs are right there in front of you. where the 4 black plugs come off the head.
-Make sure you use that Copper based lubricant so they dont get stuck later
-Unless you have the tools, pop down to a mechanic as it only takes about 10 minutes to do.

sounds like too much thinking ;) might just get the mechanic to instal them when i get the pulley done also

but thanks for the info:) much appreciated

hey what are your thoughts on this..

http://www.piloracing.com/shop/proddetail.php?prod=IGNITIONUPG&cat=23

Ignition System Upgrade Install 1 Year Warranty

Parts Included:
40,000 Volt Coil Pack,
8.5mm Plug Wires
U-grove Spark Plugs ...

bit pricey i guess.. or is it just new plugs that are needed?

why are the Denso' so much cheaper on that Pilo site? they are like 8bucks or something

Sounds like it's cheaper than the NGK's Iridium. What? Do you just rock up to the parts bloke and ask for IK22 pluggies or is there a specific part number? Thanks :)

Better ask Carl about the plugs - I have no idea what's in it at the moment but wouldn't hurt to ditch them along with the plug wires. Giles/CCS swears by the Magnecor (sp?) that replaced the original set, I might do the same and see if there's any difference.

I got my 8mm leads from Turner Motorsport in the US.. im running the Iridiums as in performance testing in US cars there is a marginal difference in the dyno figures (supposivly over the Denso plugs) If i could afford them i would get the Bosch Motorsport surface discharge iriduim plugs but they are about $200 each. (HR7 MPP 22v) I think thats correct... but not 100%sure on the number. But yes.. the plugs in the 7 heat range seem to make a good deal of difference to the heat the engine creates... (less) as they effectively pull heat from the engine better than the 6's

Another good thing to do is to put and elctro silicon paste inside your plug tubes where they connect to the Plug as this gives you a far better electrical transfer to the plug and prevents Arching to the next closest earth.

I found my factory plugs where quite well fouled for Platinum plugs...

You'd probably want to give them a ring first just to check they've got them, but yeah just rock up!

Hey
the belt costs US$35...

i dont know if that is a good price or what? but i really couldn't be bothered sourcing a locally made belt :eek: :p .. so yeah, just going for the AmD one..

i had to pay an extra US$5 for shipping also
so the total bill (Pulley-55 and belt-35 and shipping-25 ..) came to US$115 = AUD$147

still cheap as chips really..

i bet someone is going to reply to this now saying i can get belts with same quality etc for a fraction of the price :rolleyes: hhaha oh well
