So you should be either -7 or -8 heat range and your tuner will have his favorite
That's a good tuner.

Yeah I dont get it with ZR1Plugs.....sure they are in a factory supercharged car, but just becuse you supercharge your ls doesn't mean you automatically run ZR1 plugs!!

I dont like SCT hand helds...I'll stick with HP Tuners!

Plugs were ok just in the wrong application.
