    What to get?

    Hi,

    I'm in two mind's of what i should do, i would like to change my spark plug's to NGK Iridium's but i don't know what real benefit's they offer?

    On the other hand i could put some the money toward's an SRi Turbo bodykit for my LS.

    Money's a bit tight atm because i wrote my last astra off so it cost my a pretty penny.

    My car's a 1.6 8v btw

    You won't see a greta benefit of Iriduim spark plugs on such an old low power engine. Might as well stick to normal spark plugs and ensure that the gaps are right and they are clean. Your not going to see any kind of big power increases on that engine, most i got out of mine was about 8bhp over normal but had a lexmaul manifold and a couple of other things. I'd either concerntrate on the exterior or save and get a better and bigger engine, XE or something.

    Thank's for the reply, the engine has only done 23900 but i know what you mean by old....

    I'm only 17 so getting a bigger engine isn't really an option plus the 1.6 does all that i need it to do.

    I'll just concentrate on the exterior, thank's
