Spark plugs DIY! How to install and gap for N54 - Video

Whats up fellow 1addicts, I made a video for Spark plugs for the N54! I recently gave my car some new plugs along with a lot of other maintenance in preparation for an MHD flash. In the video I mention which kind of spark plugs I found to be the best, How to install them on the n54, and how to gap them as well.

Hope you guys enjoy! Here is a link the video

Great video! I'm going to change my own spark plugs here in a week or so and use this for reference. I do have one question, how do you know what gap you want/need for your spark plugs?

So Ive heard it depends on how much power your making/how much boost your running and what not. In this video, I used a .022 gap because based on all the research I have done that is best when your N54 is tuned or making more power than stock. My car is actually currently still stock, Ive had the new plugs in and gapped at .022 on my stock car for a couple weeks and it has been running amazingly. I plan on getting my car tuned really soon so thats why I am running a .022 gap, but It has been running amazing on a stock car as well in the meantime.

Gotcha! I'll just gap at .022 as well then I'll probably tune it somewhat soon as well. Thanks again man
