What spark plugs are people installing in their LLT as either an upgrade, age replacement, or when fouled?

Plugs are good for 100K. Should be no real reason to change any earlier unless you are going FI, or nitrous. When I do get ready to change I will be going with the stock ones, they are working good for me now. No reason to change. IMHO.

I'm about to hit 50k and am going to pull and inspect mine when I change my oil this or next weekend.

Assumed stock would go back in mine if/when I change them. Was just curious

Good Call, I will probably be doing the something when I get to 50K just to see what is going on. Cheap enough to replace 6 of them if need be. I was reading about someone who was changing them at every 12K or so. Now that is a total waste of $$.

Yeah. Unless you have a bad tune or something that's burning them that's ridiculous!!

FYI,
At 52k mi, I just pulled and inspected my plugs. All looked within normal wear, but the gaps weren't very consistent.

Gapped them all to easily allow a .040, but not a .045 so they should now be consistent and close to the .043 spec.

Some anti-seize and dialectic grease and they're good to go for more miles!

At least half wouldn't let the .040 loop on the wire gage pass though without me worried of damaging the electrode .

Also, can't speak towards HP/MPG but she really idles smoother after the work. I had noticed a bit of something in her purring this summer and it seems to be gone now.
