Spark plugs - NA v S - Engine & Ancilliaries/Gearbox - The Lotus Forums #ForTheOwners Jump to content


Recommended Posts

I know the spark plugs for the S can be bought way cheaper than from Lotus.  

But I understand the plugs in the NA are different;  has anyone found a cheaper way to buy them than from Lotus, and if so, where from?

Hasn't the lotus price for Evora S/400 etc spark plugs come down a lot, just looked for A132E6503F  on B&C and SJ and they seem to be just over £6 each. The same part seems to be used on all the s/c evoras. Just over a year ago I paid over £40 each.  Unless I am looking up the wrong part number, this is not the part number for the NA.

That's correct it seems - I looked on Deroure yesterday.   WAY cheaper than those for the NA.

Yes, also checked with PJS that they are the ones for 410 and my 430.

Don't need them for a couple of years, bought incase Lotus put the price up to closer to what they were.

They say these plugs are good for any model, which is great news.

They are wrong then. The NA & FE engines use different types of plugs.

Monkeywrench reply:

 

"The OEM plugs are different heat ranges.

 

Maybe you could tell me what kind of car and modifications you have, and I could recommend the right solution?"

 

Anyone shed light on this? I have absolutely no clue what the differences are and would also like to know if these are good for my NA.

Incidentally, aren't Monkeywrench based in the US? Why are you buying your spark plugs from there??!?

Thanks, yes I’m aware that the plugs for the NA are £36 each (!) from Lotus, unlike the bargain price for the S versions.

My original question still stands - has anyone found them any cheaper anywhere (UK) ?

Another well known forum says:

Denso FK20HR11 (NA)
Toyota 90919-01247 (NA)

If that helps.

Fantastic.  £75 for all 6 plugs.   That’s more like it - £141 cheaper than from Lotus.  Thank you 😉
