a bloke i know has an EB 4.0lt head on his EF 4.0L.
My question is, Should this run the BRE527Y-11's (EB sparkplugs) or the BPR5EY-11 (EF sparkplugs)???
Thanks
David

if it's using the EF coil pack then use EF plugs.
using the EB dizzy and coil, use EB plugs

its an EB head, therefore use the EB plugs (BRE572Y-11)
The EF plugs are not long reach plugs.

the plug position is the same on both heads.


so tell me, what do you use


EB GLI uses a denso J16ARU11
EB XR6 uses a W16EXRU

EF GLI uses a W16EXRU11
EF XR6 uses a W16EXRU

use what ever you like. it wont make much difference.
