OEM spark plugs have been proven time and time again to last 100k. They work very well. Expensive, but they are solid

Turbine thing in the intake? Leave the engine alone. Those things did nothing 15 years ago, they still do nothing today. Well if it falls apart it will do something, destroy the engine.

I remember when I worked for Nissan in the '80s we would always use the hotter BPR4ES-11 spark plugs in the E-series engines because they would run better, however, I wouldn't recommend it in the VQ-series engines. The factory plug is the NGK Laser Iridium # 93759, which can be pushed to 120,000 miles without a problem, even though Nissan recommends a 105,000 mile replacement interval. If you want to save about $5 per plug, then go with the NGK Laser Platinum # 6240, but I wouldn't push them past the 105,000 mile interval. I've used both in my 2008 Pathfinder and didn't notice any performance or gas mileage change.
