whats the preferred oil, oil filter, and spark plugs for our hemi? and mines an 05 if that matters.
For a stock 5.7 hemi, the OEM Champion plugs are fine. The plug part number can be found on the emissions label under the hood.
As far as oil goes. The 5.7 requires 5w-20 for the MDS system to function properly. Any quality oil and filter is fine. Synthetic is ok if that's your preference. Mobil 1 with Mobil 1 filter is what I use.

I use Mobil 1 and a Wix 51773 filter.
ok. in all my other cars ive always quaker state Q horsepower full synthetic, and ill start using wix oil filters again and would the NGK G power single platinum plugs do just fine? there $2.99 a plug so it not a bad price.

Q is good oil, and Wix are good filters.
The stock copper plugs are just fine for 40K miles. I prefer to anti seize the plug threads and dielectric the boots for easier removal later on.

You don't need fancy plugs unless you are running nitrous, supercharger or turbo.
I always run full synthetic in all my cars. Usually Royal purple but if I run out I will occasionally use Mobil 1.
Yup keep note as well you can use longer oil filters, for no reason other than larger filter capacity, which may be better in the long run depending on the intervals. Countless threads have been made about it. But yeah for stock motors stock replacement plugs work great. OEM Champions or NGK 5306s work, I use the NGKs and just did my replacements and they looked good still.
