Talking spark plugs & radiator cap

hello ladies and gents,

i'm contemplating on what raditor cap & spark plugs i should buy.

These are my options.

Radiator cap(s):

1. Apexi GT radiator cap
2. ARC radiator cap
3. Blitz radiator cap
4. Koyo radiator cap

Spark plugs: (Iridium/Pro/Racing/tune)

1. Apexi racing
2. Blitz iridium
3. Bosh platinum
4. Denso iridium
5. Greddy iridium pro
6. Greddy iridium tune

I'm using a Koyo radiator [r1276] and on a KA24E engine. I just want to put a little performance into my vehicle and want the best/better parts for my car to run nicely.

For the radiator cap, I want something that would hold good pressure on it and reliable.

As for the spark plugs, I want something that would last long and would help my vehicle be better.

Any suggestions would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance.

P.S. This will be a daily driven car. I plan on buying another 240, swap the engine and all of that good stuff. I just need something legal for now and illegal for off road/drift/track use later on. So, please help me with my daily driven ride.

radiator caps should all be the same. stock pressure is .9kg/cm2 while the ones you are looking at should all be 1.3kg/cm2
as for spark plugs, i use denso iridiums which seem to perform better than the bosch platinums that were in there originally.

All you have is a KA24E. Go OEM or Nismo cap, Denso Iridium. The rest is all for the sake of being able to say "hey I got Blitz plugs" or "ARC cap" when in reality they all do the same thing. JDM Tyte or not. =)

I would go arc as they have three colors to chose from. If you want something for half that go with a greddy, hks, etc. They all do the same ****.

Smart people would know that the best upgrade for least cash is simply putting a Z32-TT radiator cap on your car. Exact same thing as the Nismo for a fraction of the price

As for plugs, regular NGK coppers tend to be the tuner standby for plugs, cheap and reliable. While the platinum tipped last longer, sometimes their price isn't worthwhile.
