OEM will work but I believe that it is recomended to go with a different "heat" range spark plug for some help in the performance.

I had to try 2 different ones til my 416 was much happier with the Zr-1's.
you'll know when your tuning and by looking at the spark plug. I'm occ like that lol.

I went with the cooler plugs but can't say if it makes a difference or not.

No need or benefit to changing plugs unless they are worn or broken

I have been saying this for years and recently people are starting to see the light

It's also good advice to talk with your tuner and see what they usually recommend with similar builds to your own.

This is true. I didn't change my plugs and I saw the same magical KR improvement from the tune from someone who shall remain nameless (^^^).

Wow this spun out fast!

New plugs when you go FI or increase compression. Otherwise, make your tuner get rid of the retard.

You should try a set of AC Delco 41-104s at 0.042 Gap I think you will be impressed.
