The NGKs made a difference in the overall running.

Oh yeah. My car feels so much smoother. I used to have a little hesitation here and there. Now it's completely gone so glad I decided to do it before the race.

Just a heads-up Mvp, these guys are all running IPF superchargers and that particular NGK would probably be not be an improvement in a car without some forced induction system.

Good luck man. Looking forward to your results. Have you taken her down this track before either before or after supercharging your car? If so, what did you get?

Thanks everyone. Took my car when it was stock with some heavy 20's and ran 14.52 @ 96.54 mph. Took the car with the supercharger and broke my drive shaft bolts while warming up my tires at a low rpm. I didn't get one run down the track.thats what made me get a new stronger driveshaft.
