Hey guys, just to let you know about my experience, today I bought a set of BA MkII XR6T plugs and got some 9mm Queensland Ignition Leads. I was previously running bosch super 4 plugs and bosch leads.

I also replaced the distributor cap and fitted it all up. Reset computer and took it for a run and it is noticebly better than the bosch super 4s :) but don't get me wrong the bosch super 4s are very good, but the XR6T plugs are even better :D

Still need to readjust timing with the timing light and all but seat of the pants feeling you can't go wrong with the XR6T plugs :wink:

Magnecor Leads are meant to be pretty decent. The KV85, should suit you fine.. Cost around $150-250. I forget.

The KV85, is they're Competition set (8.5mm). Or they have a R-100 Racing set, which are 10mm.

Has anyone fitted that ICE Digital Ignition Module?? Worth it?

The BA XR6T MKII plugs would be a much colder rating plug than that of the normal plugs we require. You are meant to go to a colder plug when you making 75-100hp more than that on your standard plug.

I think it would be more beneficial to fit the standard BA Iridium plugs to 90% of the cars on this forum.

It depends on how much colder the plug is in comparison to the tickford plug. Im certainly no expert, but you say your over fueling so a colder plug would probably cause it to over fuel even more.

For whatever it costs, you could always try both the standard iridium of the BA and also the xrt. You've spent a bundle already, whats a few more dollars :P
