Default Spark plug?

I need some recommendations on spark plugs. My first mods will be cai and pulley then from there I don't know yet. I want to put a set of plugs in there that I wont have to change in future w/ more mods. Price it not that big of an issue on the plugs.

Recommend Away!

Thanks

NGK TR-55'* are pretty much the standard that most of us run. That'* what I'm running right now. You should be fine with those.

I can't think of anybody who has run them yet......A lil pricey.....I think that'* what steers most of us away.

$70.00 give or take a little is very pricey, but if they are better I would rather spend a little more money now then more later.

If your stock, then .060 and you should be running autolite 605'*. 104'* will be too cold until you start modding.

with a 3.4 pulley then 104'* @ .055

The gap should get smaller with added boost.
