30K mile service doesn't call for a change in spark plugs. In fact, according to the Helms manual, you don't need to change plugs on the 5th gen until 105K miles.

And when you do for NA, the OEM plugs work best.

my car started running like crap at ~30K so i changed out the plugs...fixed it...sorta
5th gens have platinums. They're gonna last you 100K miles. Unless you're running really rich or really lean, or if you start going FI or use nitrous, I don't think swapping your plugs really necessary.

you will get less performance with colder plugs if you don't need them. now if you need them, that is your only choice (FI/n2o/aggressively built N/A motor).
in the owners manual it also says to use one step colder plugs if you live in hot climates or drive at high speeds. the colder plug will also allow you to advance the ignition timing further.

i have a JDM H22 with bolt-ons and run the 7 heat range all year round in NH.
