I've been using NGK Copper Core 2382 in my 1998 Frontier with similar engine.

NGK is all I use. They are in my 88 Camry, 94 Lexus, 87 Nissan, 1996 Yamaha Timberwolf, 2013 Honda Rancher and my 1991 Mercedes 300e.

NGK seems to run smoother and yield more gas mileage than any other plug in an import.



small thing about that stock part number. the heat range is kinda low for a motor with some miles on it. I personally like to stepup one heat range and i have 135k on mine.



Part number for a hotter plug should be ZFR4E-11. lower single digit = a hotter plug with NGK's

For those of us who use the 'Merican measuring system:
that's about 280,600 miles.
