JR... I picked up the AC delco Iridiums. Heard anything either way on them? I know they have been superb in my truck and that'* what it came with, so I replaced with the same.

Don't smack me too hard, 2000 Chevy pick up.. at 100K I decided to change the plugs. They were burning good and still tons of power. About 3x the gap they should have been.

I think the Iridiums are good plugs and some run them in their supercharged applications... So they should be fine...

From what I understand platinums are a diffrent metal and do not do too well in boosted applications... Most of the time they reccomend copper plugs in boosted applications...

The SC guys will know more about the Iridiums than I will...lol

Yeah leave it to a Chevy V8 to still make power on worn plugs...lol

Thanks for the info. My new buddy at the parts store has a 95 Riviera SC and it came with iridiums...so I decided I could swing them. So far so good.
