TTNSO8 Plattinum Plugs

TTNSO8 just wondering if you've had time to evaluate the new plugs yet?

Re: TTNSO8 Plattinum Plugs

I put them in and there was an improvement in power, but i had made other changes as well so it was hard to tell.

I used the 6 NGK iridiums, and the power went from 212.8rwkw to 233.6rwkw but other changes included valve springs and timing, so its hard to tell the difference they made.

If i get the chance to do an actual comparison, I'll let you know :)

Re: TTNSO8 Plattinum Plugs

Cheers. Guess valve springs aren't going to make too much of a difference to power, and unless your timing was way off, seems like some of the gain must be attributed to the plugs.

Re: TTNSO8 Plattinum Plugs

Naa, springs helped a little. timing we went up a few more degrees.

I think there was some gain in power, probably marginal but the main reason I went for them was reasonably priced and better cleaning qualities to help me with the bottle. :)

Re: TTNSO8 Plattinum Plugs

From all the threads I've been reading on platinums, no one seems to be bragging about them. Lots of people swear by their conventional style plugs.

I did read one funny test method...........

Put a set of 4 platinums on the drivers side head and leave your original plugs on the passenger side. Take it for a spin and see which side the car pulls to!!!

Here's another Clevo forum that has lots of good info too (US based)......

And here's one especially for Ford Truck 351C's!
