Hi Guys,
I just did some online R&D and please check out this website:
http://www.ngk.com/results_app.asp?aaia=1386479

Just as the Singaporeans mention, we can use Iridium plugs. The stock standard plugs which mention in our manual is just ordinary type.

WHO WANTS TO TRY?? Please raise your hand and we all will support you - Morally. Hahhahaaha.

Silverstone spark plugs -Silver Center Electrode
-Up To 137% More Spark Power
-Increased Horsepower
-Cleaner Combustion
-Long Lasting
-Race Proven Design
-Top Quality Materials

Silverstone spark plugs are especially designed for the unique demands of modern high-performance engines. Silver is the best electrical and thermal conductor of all metals, which makes it the ultimate material for a spark plug's center electrode. The large diameter silver center electrode of Silverstone spark plugs increases spark carrying ability and spark power by as much as 137%. Silver is extremely resistant to erosion, guaranteeing a virtually unchanged electrode gap for the life of the spark plug. Silverstone spark plugs are designed without a suppressor resistor, perfect for performance enthusiasts who demand the most from their engines. For racing or dependability and efficiency for everyday use, Silverstone spark plugs deliver the most powerful spark.

When choose spark plug, the following must be taken carefully:-
1.) Heat range, Hot, Normal or Cool plug, for Accent use hot plug.
2.) Performance wise, Normal class, Premium class or Racing class, for Accent premium class will be more than enough.
3.) Size and diameter must same.

Very Happy

Iridium is definetely a good choice.... but myself i have not tried that yet but will try it though one day.. im using the stock plugs now known as OWS.. the original plugs when i get my car was NGK which is not bad too... But i recently just changed to OWS find that not much power compared to NGK plugs. So the next time round would try out the iridium plus and give you all feedbacks on it.

According to the manual of you Accent, you should find the "Recommeded" spark plug Accent should use.

Hey edmond1978, long time no see. Happy to see you back here.
So far after 1K of using the Iridium plugs, no problem and combustion is good. Acceleration is better due to better combustion. Did not experience any sudden acceleration jerking etc.
Is the plugs rating as cold and the clearence 1.1? It could be due to that. Any from Sg using Iridium?

David, the most important in choosing the right plugs is the clearance. Our plugs clearance is 1.1. If we were to buy from outside, make sure its for injector engines with a 1.1 category. You can use any brand of plugs and types (like cold plugs or warm plugs etc)

Hi accentians, I have already changed my spark plugs to NGK Iridium at 5K and I didnt feel any difference. If not mistaken I changed to the cold one.

I wonder if changing the ignition cable would help to increase the performance or not becasue the guy at the accessory shop told me that it can. But the SC guys told me not too if our car is still under warranty. I wonder if changing it would make any difference and also how it effects our warranty.

I have changed the spark plugs when 20,000KM service, and it is the interval recommanded by the KB SC....and yes, no difference after changed

fabho, you have used the wrong plugs for your Accent. We require a hot plug and not a cold one. Cold plugs are normally used by high rev cars (Sport cars, High CC cars etc) while Hot Plugs are more for normal to low CC cars.
You can refer to
http://auto.howstuffworks.com/ignition-system2.htm
That is the reason you're not feeling the effects of using Iridium plugs.
As for ignition cable,you do not need to changed it yet as it is still under warranty. You can change it after warranty but you will have to find a suitable one. Our type is distributorless which means if there are any problems to the distributors you will need to change a lot more things compared to just the distributor cap (older model of cars).

slbeh, the plugs that you changed at KB SC is just ordinary plugs. You will not feel any difference at all.
The reason I changed to Iridium is not for performance but for better ignition of the fuel and longer interval for changing it. Iridium plugs are change around 100K to 200K km's. I'm planning to change mine when I reach 150K km.

Marky, been busy for quite some time, ya, I have been using this cold spark plug for abt a month already and still seems fine. Actually according to the mechanic, he change for me the medium one ie in between cold and hot because he said got 3 grading and the coldest one is for sports car and my car can use this one.
