With that setup, I'd run autolite 24s.

Running a colder range it not necessarily the "safer" option though. Don't forget that if you run a plug that's too cold, you could end up fouling your plugs and they become useless. With a supercharger and a 100 shot of nitrous my autolite 24s are right on the money. I actually just happened to pull a plug last night to test it and it looked great.

If you run a plug thats too cold and if you happen to run a little rich...forget about it. Might as well toss the plugs now because they probably won't last long.

When I ran spray Nitrous Express told me that I didn't have to run a colder plug unless I went over 150 shot. I may have to run a colder plug but not to golower than one heat range. I ran 25s and never had a problem running 150 shot.
