I had a discussion with @txav8r the other night with regards to the LF6RA Plugs and the price. I thought the price of $4.32 ea was too good to be true. I ordered them and they just came in today. They are the real deal for almost half price.

Sold in packs of 10, $52.10 shipped.

The -11's are not the correct plugs. I made this mistake last year.

Just to help with this more as I don't see it in the quote above...I actually talked with NGK's tech department about the difference in the straight LFR6A and the LFR6A-11. NGK says if you gap a -11 to the tolerance we need for our engines, it will risk breaking at the weld. I know, I know, many guys have bought the plug thinking it is the same for less money. Maybe that is why they are now pricing both similarly. But don't use the -11...it could cost you $10K for an engine if an electrode breaks off in the cylinder head.

Looking into buying plugs again this year and my great deal from last year no longer exists. I found these LFR6A (not -11's) for a great price. The stock number is identical (6668) as the yellow box ones as the picture above. Not sure if the "v-Power" makes them any different but i'm going to buy them and inspect to see if there is any difference.

Sold in packs of 6. With the $5 off coupon when you go to their site for the first time it comes to $25.82 shipped.

@GiddYupJoe You had me puzzled as to why you had a ~1986 Dodge K car inside of your house. Then I figured out it is your oven/range!! Lol.

Whoa... p.o.'d that I missed this so I started looking around.
I looked at Amazon the other day and they were full price. Today? $3.69 with free shipping for Prime.

Sorry @GiddYupJoe!
Nice find @msavold! My method only worked if you had a couple left over from last year anyway (came in 6 packs). I'm sure this amazon seller will be out soon so hurry up and grabbem' fellas, summarization is right around the corner.

@Murf'n'surf didn't you drive a K one time in your life, if I remember correctly?

Just came in today. If they are ever in stock again they are the correct ones.

Amazon is all over the map on these. I put in 8 at $3.69, came back later and they were still in my cart but the price was $13.14 each! Just went there now and they are $8.09 each.

As long as they don't say -11 and they do say 6668 ou should be good to go.

Yes. They will likely come to you in a package that looks different than that but those are the correct ones. Good find.
