When I put them in it just wasn't handy, so I grabbed the 5/8 deep. My bad.

What I don't get is I put those plugs in weeks ago, and was driving a fair amount, other then the week and a half the trans was out. I did a lot of WOT runs with no problems. It just started today.

I think that just shows the fragility of one of the main parts that the engine needs to run properly. Thankfully you didn't have to tear the engine out to find it...

Sorry....I had to say it.

Ha ha, very funny Kevin.

Changed out the MSD coils for my stock set. No more sputtering. Got a good scan in as well. 16* of timing and still running a bit lean. Might be able to toss a degree or 2 on and a bit more fuel and still have no knock. I'm running a 3.0" pulley. Happy with the results. Ignore the wide band. The sensor died.

It'* amazing how easy it is to break a $2 part. Glad it was cheap and easy.

Yep, and didn't have to rip everything apart. No wit'* off to get my emissions test. Hope I pass. You never did look at my BIN file did you.

Edit: Never mind. I looked again and found I shut off the light but never turned off report. Done now.
