Whipple recommends every 25K miles. I personally don't know, so I am going to pull mine at the 15K mark and give them a look.

If you are running the copper TR7s, plan on changing them every 10-15k.

3526 for the copper, 3960 for the iridium version. 3346 is the same heat range, but in a non-projected tip (BR7EF).

Yes. Non projected don't drive as good from my experience and a few friends.

I like the iridiums. Running the 7ix in my car. I like them a lot more than the br7ef.

I have the TR6ix in mine at 7.5psi boost. I'm putting my rear cog drive on today, so i'll be around 9ish psi, and I dont plan on moving to TR7s unless I have too, and if I do, it will also be the iridiums. I have 3 LS based vehicles, and they all seem to idle better with the iridiums, and haven't seen down sides other than the price. The non projected tips seem to not idle as well either to me.
