Champion 9mm leads. Bosch plugs, 1 (or 2?) ranges cooler than standard and gapped @ 1.1mm for forced induction.... gap makes for some funky idling, lol.

I'm with drone. Plugs can be a real pain in the a**.... one behind altenator comes to mind. But then, think i can stand a few grazed knuckles if saves 20 odd bucks per plug.... these buggers run rich enough to foul em up fairly quick, lol. And I dont think im meant to run iridium with the charger for some reason :shock:


how much did the charger set up cost you

About 6k plus a few additions to the ol' tool kit. DIY with a CAPA kit.

(and yeah, i realise the irony of not wanting to pay $25 per iridium plug, lol :wink: )

You aren't really suppose to run iridiums with a blower as there are a number of cases of the tips being blown off (for some reason, probably heat) and causing misfires as well as little bits of metal in the cylinders.

Definitely NGK Iridiums as it is a bit of a b**ch to change plugs on the Windsor every 20,000kms!! Call Joe (Crescent Motorsport) as he can get them for you at around $7 each. A lot cheaper than the $20 each at auto stores.

As for leads, I've had Eagle and they've never failed me. Topgun fall to pieces.. Again, Joe seems to think a brand from Queensland he sells is 'teh sex'.


How do I get in contact with joe? I'll buy 8 for an AU1 XR8.
