That's kind of interesting Jaysen. So running colder plugs can negate pinging issues? Is this a surefire remedy for all pinging should people choose not to adjust their timing?


Surefire remedy i suppose... but id call it more of a stop gap measure. Better off tinkering with timing IMO, there can be some adverse side effects of running colder plugs/narrower gaps. A colder plug can run like sh*t at lower loads, be more prone to fouling, same with a reduced gap.

AUII XR8 needs to be run on PULP... but no need to get optimax/ultimate and the like, just standard premium should be mickey.

PULP won't be bad for the car... Just make sure that if it does start pinginng that you switch back.
