Spark Plugs????

I have a 2007 Tundra Crewmax with 5.7, what plugs do you recommend and how hard are they to change?

Denso and from what I have heard they are easy to change, only 1 plug involves relocating some stuff in the engine bay. With that said though, your original plugs should be good for 100K miles.

OEM plugs are good for 120K miles. I checked mine at 122K and they still look good. Changing them before 120K is likely premature.

Not a bad idea. My son has a 3.3 Solara with the same type of plug. At 160K miles they still look great and the car runs great. To replace the rear bank of plugs requires removing the intake runners...ugh! Tundras don't have that issue but why throw away perfectly functioning plugs? My totally WAG is that iridium plugs are good for 200K miles.

NGK DILFR6D11 (6176), about $16 a pop.
Took me around 2 hours to change 'em out. Used anti-seize and torqued to spec. Even though the right side has the air box that has to be removed, it was easier for me than the left side.

Just wanted to update...I've changed out my NGK sparkplugs twice now, around 45k miles and again at 85k miles. Receiving great gas mileage still.
NGK DILFR6D11 (6176) is ~$13 @ rockauto as of today. NGK > Denso in my book!

(hint) Your original plugs lasted at least 105k miles.

If you put a 20" extension on a 6" extension you can remove all the plugs without having to relocate anything. #Protip
