Default what plugs for 2006 3.5L V6 300

What plugs are recommended for a 2006 Chrysler 300 with the 3.5L V6? I'm at 120,000 miles and car runs fine. I'd like to go with Bosch Platinum if they are compatible.

I know I also need the intake manifold gasket, anything else recommended to change while I am at it?

Thanks,

Bob

Use only champion platinum plugs
Replace the EGR Tube gasket it will be rubber or U will get a vac leak when install the intake back.

The 3.5L H.O. V6 engine use platinum resistor spark plugs. Mopar Part #SZFR5LP13G

When the spark plugs use a single or double platinum tips and they have a recommended service life of 100,000 miles for normal driving conditions per schedule A of the owners manual. The spark plugs have a recommended service life of 75,000 miles for severe driving conditions per schedule B in owners manual. A thin platinum pad is welded to both or just the center electrode end(s) .

Extreme care must be used to prevent spark plug cross threading, mis-gapping and ceramic insulator damage during plug removal and installation.

Default Thanks for the suggestions

Thank you CHRYSLER TECH and ChryslerCares, I will make sure to get the EGR tube gasket and the platnium plugs.

Thank you both for your help, I would not have known about the gasket and would probably have gotten platinum plugs since the service life is so long I can't imagine a standard plug would be OK.

I already changed my timing belt, idler and water pump, not too bad a job. Easier than my Audi.

Hey bob,

I am in the process of changing the spark plugs on my 2006 300 3.5, question? did you remove the air intake runner all the way out of the car> if so how did you get the trans fill tube out of the way.

Thanks

OK,

Changed the spark plugs, just went slow and made sure i did not bend or break anything. I replaced the Air Plenum gasket, the EGR tube gasket and use the factory plugs.
