Don't drill 4, and don't drill that big. 2 holes no larger than 1/16" for street use in your climate.

The ZZP one I have is drilled like your 160* above with two holes next to each other. I don't remember what size though.

Why don't you just run a 180* drilled all the time if your not having a problem with KR. When your at the track your going to be running below the temp of the stat anyways. (pointless to change to 160* stat for the track)

I'm actually starting to have a KR problem now that the warmer weather is coming.....I'm contemplating tossing in colder plugs right now.
