Hey all, i know this has been asked about a million times, but i tried search and it fails lol

Got a mate wif a 96 EF fairmont, And he's running a AU series 2 motor wif EF rocker cover
Now he changed the leads too 2nd hand blue Eagle 9mm leads and it started to run like s**t, and just then he pulled the plugs out and there black and fouled, what are the best idea's and items to run


Cheers all

Sounds like less to do with plugs and more to with running rich.

tru that, but it cant ever run rich or lean...as i've been told by a dyno dude, cos the ECU and s**t (s**t maybe)

It dont blow smoke or guzzle fuel and it only occurs when on full throttle???

They wont work.... EB has dizzy, EF Coil packs. Just get a set of standard Bosch leads from supercheap. A mate with a 430rwhp ED Turbo found these work better than custom made expensive stuff.
