Stock car plugs question ('95 4.6 V8)
Hey whats up everybody,
I recently got a 95 Tbird. V8 4.6L
I've been running it as a stock car on the dirt track here in town.
The car has a number of issues.
Primarily, the car lacks power after the engine RPMs hit 3000.
I can floor the gas pedal, but won't get much, if any, power after it hits that 3 line. It runs on the track, I got a 4th in the first race with it. This is pretty good considering how badly it ran when I got it (for free).
So I put in some new plugs yesterday (OE design ? whatever that means) I asked the guy at the parts store for hotter plugs than normal.
Now I'm having the same problem, but it happens at 2000 RPMs.
I'm wondering if this problem will go away with a little time, but am a little hesitant to jam the gas pedal in my driveway for too long. I cut off the catalytic converter and exhaust system and the car is really loud (don't want to bother the neighbors).
Do I possibly need to clean the injectors?
Did I obviously mess something up when installing the plugs?
The head honcho of my racing team said to put the old plugs back in and see what happens, but I'd like to get some input before I do that, as every time I get under the hood, there's more of a chance I can screw something up.
Thank you all for your help in advance,
