Thanks! I really wanted something with a lot of lope, and TSP nailed it.

Yes, the step hotter plugs create a more complete combustion, running plugs that are too cold can cause incomplete combustion or no combustion at all, like in my case.

Been running them for about 7000 miles with a single turbo @ 10 PSI. Could tell a difference right away.

i run a tr6 for 100 shot and less. its projected. but for that size it does good. but anything above i run br7ef. my dad is a sbc guru. thats where alot of info on nitrous comes from along with a buddy that owns kyspeed . between the 2 they know what to do. when u start sprayin 200-250 and up when u really need the tune to dead on. the fine tuning lol


as far as jamie car hes not running a big shot yet.

We have had great success with densos..zr1 plugs are great for 600 flywheel hp after that there to hot IMO

You're all a bunch of dopes. Couple wanna be's, few has beens and a never was.

Been on the ZR1 plugs for a few years now. They've been working great in my 9 second car. To bad no one else can say that in here.

Over 100 on the nitrous now, still on the ZR1 plugs.

Well past 600 rwhp... Still on ZR1 plugs. Seems to work ok....

Jamie knows what I'm getting at. It's the old adage "my car is fast, I need ridiculous plugs for my ridiculous power". When in reality the OEM plug is all around the best plug you can get at.

I keep considering the ZR1 plugs but just keep thinking that I should go 1 step colder than stock due to the 12 psi, and another step colder due to the 125 shot. Also I keep thinking a non protruding plug is safer, which puts me to the Denso IT22 if I want to stay iridium.

Not at all doubting your success with the ZR1's. Just wondering when you factor in my stock cam and compression if my dynamic compression coupled with my mods might make me borderline on the ZR1's. 1 step colder than those and non protruding would for sure leave more safety margin as long as they don't foul or leave me with the light throttle misfire notorious of copper plugs in these cars.

Of course I may just be a set of ZR1 plugs, an ice chest and a mountain of frozen water away from 9's.

Go to the NGK website and educate yourself,after all why do the make colder plugs if one size fits all? I remeber when some were braging on running the stock plug and making 600 plus hp yada yada and as soon as the zl1 was out and GM used a colder plug,as they should since it went from 426hp to 580 those same guys jumped to the colder plug and braged about how it was so much better. Most dont understand what a plugs function is ,and its alot harder to tune a car with colder plugs so alot of shops run hotter plugs to make there job easier. Ive never put denzos in a car and not picked up power and the last a long long time.Good luck
