Nitrate plugs

Would any body out be able to recommend a spark plug to use with 6AL msd ignition system.
I have only use NGK but dont seem to get life out of the plug, i been told that they make a nitrate coated plug at about $20 per plug.
So if anyone could confirm that they are the one to use before i go out any blow $160 on plugs

Re: Nitrate plugs

MSD don't recommend hyped up plugs. They advise to use the std NGK or whatever.

Re: Nitrate plugs

Cool. I assume from your Avatar that you figured that one out?

A new set, all gapped the same would be a good start considering your car is new to you.

Have a look at this table and see which one matches yours!

Spark Plugs

Usually burning means too hot. Check your timing too.....does it ping at all? Try using a higher octane fuel too.

What number is on the side of your current spark plugs?

FYI: They come in different heat ranges ie: 5, 6, 7. That is, the higher the number, the plug will maintain a cooler temp due to more ceramic insulation (or less...can't remember). Generically, standard plugs are a 5, then the more worked your engine is, especially when running high compression etc, you could run a higher number or cooler plug. Flip side is that at low engine speed/idle, cold plugs foul up with oil/fuel etc.

What are your engine specs?

No rocket ship but goes ok ,I have set timing to 8-9 degrees btc run utimate 98 fuel,i have put a 6000rpm rev limiter pill into amp and seems to reach its ok might even try a 7000rpm????.

Re: Nitrate plugs

just sumthing i though u guys might be interested in.
E3 Spark Plugs
they are avaible from the list of retailrs on the page.
5 buks a pop with lifetime warranty if you can bring em back not nitro toasted lol.
They claim up to 12% even higher gains on two stroke tools being they were orriganly designed for years ago. There seller being the diamond fire deep chamber flash design.
i dont know almost 30 years in the bussiness there not as reputible as autolite, but ive really been sold on them.
runing around with rediclous fuel tunes and they burn it up!
ive seen a review on The StreetFire Video Network explaning how just the heat they release in labatory test would burn exhausting stoke, exhaust like a catalist reaction, long after the initial spark, and they also claim they never get corrosion.

Re: Nitrate plugs

try about $40 for your v8
but one day youll try em, i can already see it in you.
how many plugs on the market are willing to advertise flatout gains in numbers.
how many do it for $5 a plug.
