i've been using NGK LASER PLATINUM, got some DENSO PLATINUMS to go in next time(got a good price).
Just use what toyota recommend, i think they know best!

Well.. ive got about 250 spark plugs left out of about 400 I got recently. Free of course. I had NGK LASER IRIDIUMS in my car that were old, but not badly worn, I replaced them with BOSCHE 4 point Platinum plugs. They worked better than the plugs that were in it, but of course those plugs were used. I threw the plugs in because I had them laying around and out of the 400 plugs were some of the only ones that would fit 6mge.
I personally dont worry much about it on an N/A engine unless its an aircooled VW and I definitely recommend Copper.... and if this was a built turbo motor, id go copper, but hey, what do I know.

I went to copper NGK and felt the performance difference. I never went back.
But when they go, they really go and they're cheap to change.
I really think Toyota went platinum for longevity reasons.83-Red P-type , 6M,. LJM strut-bar, RC intake,Thorley header,Tenzo 17" wheels, cross-drilled rotors, Eibach springs, KYB shocks, 85 hatch and int., 82 header panel=Frankenkar
87 4 Runner, White, 22RE, 302K on original motor, still strong

Copper is a better conductor than platinum, but platinum is harder than copper and has a higher melting point.
So that's the trade off. You either get better conductivity but for a shorter amount of time normally, or you get less conductivity for a longer amount of time.
For the price of spark plugs, knowing these facts here and knowing about electricity, ALTHOUGH I'm all for using OEM products as much as possible, I do think my Supra will end up with good ol' Copper plugs when I do it's first tune up under my ownership.
