I'm going to hopefully be picking up some new plugs and wires today from the local Lordco but I wanted to make sure I was getting the right stuff. From searching and reading some stuff on MT it sounds like the NGK BK6s would be good choice for my engine and the NGK Blues would be fine for wiring.

But, there are several different BK6s out there: Standard, V-Power, G-Power, and Iridium IX... I do not really understand the differences but from the sounds of it, the Iridium IX is the highest performing plug.

What do you guys think about the different plugs? Is it worth it to get the Iridium IX?

If you're running hi-res code on a Megasuirt, there's a capacitor mod which should solve your problem.

It's the grounds behind the head that bolts under the heater core hoses. Happens from time to time.

That is, unless the car is bucking 10mph slower then faster in the blink of an eye, or the clutch is slipping (only if the RPM went _UP_ not DOWN). But I would almost bet it's a bad ground.

I swear by and have always used standard NGK copper plugs on all the boosted car's I've owned.

Oh, BTW... did you buy dustin's car?

Glad you like, they're pretty amazing! Much better than the old silver BSA 10 spokes...
