I changed mine at 23k miles, was having a misfire after installing Cobb S1 Aggressive.
I had run Dinnan S2 for about 12k miles before i went to Cobb.
Misfire is now gone!

ur a good man -
for changing em early.

felt a difference after changing mine.
night and day.
omg -

how did they look after 23K -
i know mine look like chit.
the dealer keep giving me the wrong plugs - n54 ones.
finally told them to use my VIN.


btw, how do u like ur Cobb tune over the Dinan.
is ur throttle response past 3k in 2nd and 3rd feel any different.
lot more dramatic in the mid range i'm guessing.

I have enjoyed both tunes, mainly from the added torque with a 6mt.
On the dyno the Cobb S1 gave simular numbers to the Dinnan S2.
The Cobb S1 Aggressive added about 20 + lb-ft torque at the low end and 20 to 30 hp at the top end over the Dinnan.
Both tunes are very smooth and fun to drive.

After installing the the stage 2 PPK, my dealership affixed a sticker to the engine which reads "Change spark plugs at 35,000 miles".

Long crank - corrected itself.
I can hear the pump prime when I unlock the door.

full bolt on and meth, JB4 ISO w/ flex fuel wires

Drivability seems more smooth and throttle is sharper...

But I also didn't have a choice, the car was misfiring on old plugs. I think every 20k is a must

Interesting. stage 1 PPK sticker I got said 50k miles. Prob trying to avoid changing under warranty...if that's the case, just put 60k miles instead.
