I haven't yet pulled all the plugs but I will soon (I'm going to get new plugs and install my PEMS at the same time) I told my bro (who works at Napa for 10 years.) how my plugs were white (well one of the plugs) and I said that I was running lean. he said I was fine, white is good. I told him no white means lean, tan means perfect, and black means you're fcuked. Then he said "Well who works at Napa for 10 years" So who'* right?

Also I told him I wanted TR55, he called them junk and said to get AC Delco. Who'* right on this also? I know you might say both are good.

My plugs run very 'clean' & I'm still using the Magnavox coil pack. I'll post a picture soon.

Tell him NGK makes the AC Delco plugs. But you don't need the 55'*, most likely. And white is worse than black.

LOL! Don't get confused, Pat. Cody (Fuel) said his plugs were white. Those pics were from Technical Ted.

Technical Ted - please don't take this topic off topic with what your plugs look like. This is Fuel'* thread for us to help him diagnose HIS problem. Your plugs could very well be burning differently since your engine is not an L36.

Feel free to start a new thread with your findings/problems in the 88-91 forum.

I think it was more of a "these are normal plugs" thing.
