BKR6EIX vs BKR6EIX-11
Posted by phil94028 [Email] (more from phil94028) on Mon, 17 Dec 2018 13:20:25
I always seem to have a hard time with plugs. Car is a 2005 9-3SS Arc.
It looks like Euro supply the BKR6EIX not the -11. A lot of talk about these not really being re-gappable as the electrode is so thin.
Should I just leave them as supplied or will this mess up the Ionization detection. I am chasing a miss under load which is probably a coil, so plugs first but did not want to complicate it with the wrong plugs.
This is what I got from a BMW site. For sure the -11 is what NGK specify for the 9-3SS.
BKR6EIX (NGK-6148) a.k.a Iridium IX - This is pregapped at .032 and should be adjusted only with a professional adjusting tool. The circle type gap tools can break the fine point on the iridium tip. This is a single ground electrode plug.
BKR6EIX-11 (NGK-3764) a.k.a Iridium IX-11 - This is pregapped at .044 and should not be used in our cars. Adjusting a gap of this width is not necessary and should not be attempted.
