I bet its that you have a gasoline TB! You need to use a diesel TB for the glow plugs to work. Make sure you keep your AFRs in check though, I hear diesel parts are super sensitive to that.

I have a 1990 b6, going turbo in June, but rebuilting at the end April, I'm looking for new sparkplug that would works for boost, T25 around 12psi, I take a look at NGK V-Power, G-Power and Iridium-IX, and I would like to know wich one will be better, and work the best for the difference in price.

Plus, I would like to know why there is so many different id number for plugs between NA6, NA8, NB1, NB2, they all have either B6 or BP, and so, run with the same plug hole size?

Thanks for the advice and info ;-)

Hi, I'm curently driving with BKR7-EV and I just got my self some toyota COPs,

I'm megasquirt and boosting at 10 psi, and will be boosting a 1 bar next summer,

I wanna know what would be the best plug on my B6 with COPs. Does the ...7-EV will still be the best bet?

Thanks
