Anyone ever try NGK's? I hear they are the best.
I have NGK Iridiums on my Vette. There are highly recommended.

Not to thread jack, but if I'm NA now, but plan on nitrous in the next month or so and I'm doing a tune-up this weekend, what plugs should I go with, and gap them to? The reason I ask is because I've read you should go colder on the plugs for nitrous, but since I haven't installed it yet I wasn't sure.

thanks

It is best to run different plugs at track with nitrous. You can e-mail autolites tech and tell them what kind of compression and other mods to engine and they will tell you. They told me to run 3923's on street and run 3922's with nitrous at track.
thanks

hmmmmmmmmmm gaping them that wide???? did that nutcraker at advance happen to sell you platnium plugs??? if so I'd remove them and install a set of copper core standard resistor plugs........damn pendejo's at autozone always try and get me to buy the platniums
*edit* I was making a generalized remark. Not all of the people working at part stores are as useless as you think... hell. I bet I could find a few that would make you look like a noob.

Depending on how cold you want to go with the plug I would go with a set of autolite 24's possibly 23's. I'm not sure about the gap with nitrous though.
