    Well I put the 1422 plugs in today. Didn't drive it much, but it felt smoother to me. I'll be driving more tomorrow and this weekend will report back then.
    Oil change this week for sure.
    Thanks All for the Tip/Help.

    Yes. I set them at .028. They were less then .024 out-of-the-box.
    The OEM plugs (5 years old 30K) looked OK, but they looked "tired".

    I’m glad I came across this thread. I’m at about 43,500 miles and was going to go with the spec. from Alldata. Had them in my Amazon cart. Excuse my ignorance, but can I ask...any concerns with the factory warranty, using the 1422s?

    Probably no real concern. Although if you go to the dealership and they aren't specifically what they have listed they might bring it up. But, same manufacturer as OEM and only 1 heat ranger cooler. So I wouldn't be concerned.

    Personally, I'm staying with the oem heat range 7 plugs. They work well for me and they're 1 step cooler than the heat range 6 plugs that originally came in earlier version of our mtors but to each his own.

    Also, just noticed you're from STL! Same here.
    And its your first post! So welcome!

    No concerns here, I would just throw the stock plugs back in if needed.

    ah, ok...so, it's the SILZKR6D8E, that Alldata shows. They are a heat range 6. I would guess that's what's in my car now. What's the number for the heat range 7? I've worked for a dealership and I currently work for an extended warranty company, so I have seen how nitpicky it can get on engine claims.
    Thanks for the welcome. I don't see many Fortes where I am...and even less Forte5's...just a ton of Optimas, lol. I'm in St. Charles, though, and I pretty much stay in this area.

    interesting....those are heat range 7. We basically have the same car. I wonder if there was a cutoff where the plug was different, OR...they changed the recommended plug, since our cars were built. I go to lunch in like 2 minutes. Gonna check my build date.
