Good thread. :)

i ended up buying the NGK ZGR6B-11

for the NL Fairlane Concorde with the Tickford engine as in the Fairmont Ghias.

The ones i pulled out were standard NL I6 plugs.

Took it for a drive, there seems to be a BIG performance boost.

I would have thought the system preferred to use existing threads if the topic is relevant.

Is that NOT the case?

Hmm just did my eb2 fairmont, NGK ZGR6B-11 gapped to 0.9mm (lpg) and bosch motorsport leads (were only $10 more than standard leads, on special)

Can't get the damn coil lead on....meaning car is undrivable cos there's no lead there :P How the %^&*$ do you reach it!?! Guess I'll have to wait till it's dry and jack up the car to look from the bottom...

Well I searched instead of making new thread :P

But seriously how do you get the coil lead on? I can't reach through the manifold to get at it...I'm expecting the car to take me from melb-->sydney and back next week...

I used a pair of extra long nose pliers....thats to do it from up top.....or jack car up, and do it from underneath with your hands.
