Interesting Spark plug find.........

Not good news! I was changing plugs because I was feeling a slight miss at low RPM while driving and at idle. Not all the time, and not very bad. I use regular spark plugs 2 steps colder because I have a 200 shot of NOS. I have all of the supporting mods for safe nitrous use so don't make that the culprit first off. Car runs and idles fine, just every once in awhile, that slight miss. Will post pics of the plug when I get it.

Appears you should get a cheap scope camera from harbor freight and suck that cylinder clean with a shop vac and small fitting then blow like crazy with compressed air and visually inspect . Hopefully nothing has been hurt much and you can go motoring with a new plug, and its a broken happens, and you should keep a eye on that cylinder but the exhaust may have cleared out crap to stick in the cats... a little porcelain and steel... Many threads on here about guys breaking one plug doing the headers....LOL
