    NAPA, they are usually about $1.99
    Not sure why some people feel they need to pay $3-5 per plug.

    Checked with Lombardo’s Napa and he couldn’t come close to that price. Rock Auto is the cheapest I’ve found at $4.66 each.

    I have been running the 5671A-9. Stock #6596. Seems to be the same plug except that the hex size is 5/8 instead of 13/16. NGKwholesale.com $1.84

    A 5671 is not the same as a 6061. The 6061 has a shorter ground strap to lessen the possibility of heating it up like a glow plug and causing pre-ignition. Also internally the plug is designed to stand up to greater pressure from Superchargers. Not saying that 5671 does not work ok just saying it is not the same plug.

    Take both. 6061 and a 5671 and put them side by side and compare the bottom ends. You will see the difference right away unless you got bad eyesight.

    I have never seen a 6061 listed with a 5/8” option.
