ok, so my car got out on the dyno the other day and we noticed it needs new plugs,
ill be changing the plugs at the same time as i buy/install my extractors,

i have no idea what sort of plugs i should be using as this is the first v8 iv owned,
but so far iv been recommended NGK bpr6fs-15


does anyone else have any comments/recomendations to make?
also, i run duel fuel...



dunno if it matters, but heres my dyno sheet:

Aren't they only worth it if you are running after market stuff such as MSD? I don't think spending $30 a plug to be powered by factory dizzy/coil will provide that much gain/if any? I'm prob' wrong but that's what i have been told when i asked what plugs to use.

try splitfire plugs if you want to try a premium plug, great plug, half the price of ngk iridium ones.

but for a standard, daily driver, you wont notice much of a difference over a standard plug as far as performance goes, just longer plug life.

i run NGK iridiums i was told they are good for lpg, can't remember no's but they were specifically for lpg installs - seem good to me and if your plugs are as hard to get to as mine with gas gear in the way its a good idea - me thinks

thanks for the replies guys,

iv been talking to someone about them and he seems to think platinum are no good and over priced,
and iridium are similar,

but yea, i might try something that lasts longer since, like i stated above, ill be changing them when i do my extractors lol,

ill take a look around,
