Not sure whether this belongs here or on "Repairs/Mods", but I wonder if anyone has used NGK plugs on an Evinrude Ficht. I have been using Champions with no special problems, but have alwyas preferred NGK, and NGK lists a plug for the '98-'99 175 HP application.

For a short time OMC used an NGK plug in the 1999 150-175 FICHTS. It was way more expensive than the earlier Champion plug, plus the NGK didn't work out that well for the application.
When all the '98-'99 FICHT problems developed on the 150-175, the cylinder heads were redesigned and a special Champion plug was used, and is still used today for the 2005 models.

Seahorse - Thanks for the quick reply! I guess I'll stick with my Champion XC12PEPB's.
