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.

I have an aluminum one piece. So far so good. I still have a stock clutch. It is a stick. My car has around 35000 clutch seems like its holding up great. Thanks a lot

Oh definitely car feels like it accelerates a lot quicker. I barely have to push on the gas to speed up. I don't even need to downshift into a lower gear to accelerate. So far I've been lucky with my clutch. Although I'm gentle on the clutch unless its racing time.

It should work in the LFX according to the NGK usage book.
