Spark plugs

Evening all, I've got a 2001 bugeye and I'm looking to put the best spark plugs I can in her. She has had some mods bigger turbo, injectors, re-map and she's running 320 bhp. Any ideas?

Re: Spark plugs

also, try your local Motor factors, they are used in the Audi turbo(or somthing daft) and are popular so can be had for around 22 quid, most internet places want a good tenner more .

Re: Spark plugs

what I will say is dont throw the wrong plug in thinking it will give you more power,
running the wrong spark plug in the standard engine could result in extra carbon build ups, the cooler running name is all about the tip temp(length if we want to be exact),

With extra power/boost comes a higher temp so you need a cooler running plug to try and maintain the optimum temp of 400 to 700,
if you have a car running too cold the carbon wont burn off, just as too hot and it will ignite the A/F mixture and cause pinking/DET,
hope this helps
