G’day everyone,

Has anyone fitted Denso IU24 plugs in lieu of the factory NGK PMR8C-H?

They’re different lengths on the electrode side and it didn’t fill me with enough confidence to pop them in.

My thinking was Iridium “should” last longer considering how much a of a pain the back ones are to get to.

Interested to hear your experience.

I fitted IU24 plugs to my grunt 06 QPV 4.2 but they were exactly the same size as the plugs that came out - I'll need to dig out the old plugs to see what model they were.
IU24s have worked perfectly for the 3k I've done so far with them

Hmm, interesting.

The NGK and Denso websites both list the same plug for the 4.7 variants. I assume the extra hp on the Sport GTS is a software not hardware change so they should be the same.

I’ll dig a bit deeper

The dry sump and wet sump engines use different plugs. If you put those shorter plugs in you'll have trouble building a suitable flame front to ensure complete combustion.

Thanks for the replies.

dunnah01 - are you saying the factory plugs were the 8B? The plugs in it at the moment are the NGK R PMR8C-H.

voicey - agreed on the combustion issue. What’s got me guessing is why the Denso reference might be wrong as I thought all the 4.7’s were wet sump = 1 less variable...maybe

This will teach me for trying something different

My car has done 50k so the 8B plugs were probably factory although I can't be sure. I did a service about 3 months ago and it made sense to change the plugs whilst I was there, which is when I installed the IU24 plugs. I made sure to compare them beforehand just to make sure that they were the same size (which they were). Mine's a dry sump 4.2 so I'll happily take Voicey's advice that the wet sump 4.7 use the longer 8C-H plug
