What gap are you running? Im guessing around .032. I know the sbc engines on the spray liked no more than .028 but then that gets harder to light off the mix at light throttle cruise.

NGKs and Densos are best suited for Japanese makes, since they are Japanese spark plug brands.

Also, I'm about 100 miles from updating the info with the ZR1 plugs. I'll try to get out and drive it if the weather shapes up a bit.

Not necessarily. Tools don't go into the functioning or operation of the mechanism itself. It is as the name implies, a tool used to achieve a greater goal (assembling parts together. You don't use a hand wrench in place of a piston, now do you?).

I watched EricTheCarGuy on YouTube and his explanation of spark plugs. Subaru (a Japanese make) will not run with non-Japanese spark plugs, like Autolite. Therefore, it only makes sense (generally) that the location of make of the engine and spark plugs match for best performance.

I'd say stock delcos. You might try the ZR1 plugs, read them, and adjust tune to see how they do for you.

ZR1/ZL1 Plug # 41-104

Maybe he can explain to me why my car starts with Japanese plugs, because my LSX block is pretty damn American.



This guy...

Edit: I forgot to mention this, but I had an 04 Subaru STi before I got my diesel, and NEVER did I hear anything about having to use Japanese plugs. They all work.

It's not that they don't work, it's that they aren't as good as the Denso plugs.

The ZR1 is also 1 heat range hotter than the BR7EF, and has a projected tip, all better for daily driving.

This is 100% not true.

Ac plugs aren't made by gm, as stated NGK and Denso make oem plugs for the general. Some earlier ls motors actually had NGK stamped on them, along with the delco number.

People got caught up in the internet hype and simply didn't know any better.

I tested TR6 Plugs back in 2002 on My 2000 Trans am Vortech supercharged for the same reason it was on the internet so it must be true.

It took me less than 10 minutes to figure out something was just not right, Idle quality, light throttle and cruise suffered and there was a Zero Performance gain.

I put the stock plugs back in and everything returned to normal.

I have seen this scenario play out over and over again thousands of times over the last 11 years.

Since I run E-85, does anyone have the part number for one heat range hotter than the stock 41-104's?
And the rebate is valid through the end of the year, so that'll save you $16!
