    PLFR6A-11 is the OEM plug for the H6, regardless of the model.

    Hello Sir,
    I was wondering if I could ask your opinion on which spark plugs to run in by `01 H6 non VDC?
    Either the: NGK 7654 PLFR6A-11 Double Platinum
    or NGK 6619 LFR6AIX-11 Single Iridium
    or Denso SK20HR11 Iridium Long Life 120k

    I can see you really know your **** and would love to hear your real world experience w/ these engines! Also whats your preference on oil? Im doing a 5w-30 full synthetic.
    I just bought the car a month ago and she has 133k on her, but she doesnt make a single noise and Id like to keep it that way to 300k+

    I appreciate any knowledge you could throw my way
    Thanks Man

    Hey, I replied on this thread... wanted your input on it

    "I recently bought an UltraGauge to monitor real time fuel economy. I have noticed a considerable higher fuel economy number when taking the car out of gear. It's about double (literally double) what I get compared to keeping it in gear and downshifting. I hit 178mpg while going down hill and out of gear. It was around 80mpg while I was in 5th gear.

    I'm curious to what you guys think of this based on the conversations we've had here about the best way to drive for fuel economy."

    Hey, the diagram would possibly help. The fan appears to run fine, but i didn't check if both are running. I will start by replacing the relay. Can this be found at the local shops like Advanced, and oreileys? There are multiple ECUs on ebay from the same car I have found. $50 and under. Does this sound like a decent plan?

    I got the HID from a guy I work with and the projectors are from Retro Fit Source online. RTS makes the projectors.

    Cardoc, can you tell me what Plug-n-Play HID lights you used? I'd like to do that to my '01 OBW.

    I read your response to the check engine code P0420, and I have the same code, I have a 2002 outback that we just drove to Oakland, CA. from Boulder, CO. and back and the car did great! It was a total of 2,500 miles or so. I replaced the upstream o2 sensor in California because it gave me a code for it. that helped it to balance it's fuel mixture again. than in WY. on the way home it was a chilling -13 degrees and I was on a large hill and got alot of speed and the check engine light was flashing, I figured it was freaking out because the air was way too cold for that amount of rpm's and it stopped when I slowed down. but than it reappeared with the P0420 and I can smell fuel but there is no other symptom that you mentioned. It is running great, I had the cat converter replaced a year ago, it has a new battery, maintains good temperature, can you help me?
