Yeah so anyway, I am planning on doing a tune up this weekend. I am planning on installing my CAI, 180* T-stat, and I already have my intense pcm installed. What I was wondering is with my mods what is the best gap on the plugs to go with.

I was thinking of going with the NGK plugs or AC Delco, (I think they may be made by the same people??). The wires I will be using are the Belden premium (everyone in the club seems to like them).

I have read different gaps .045, .050, etc.... I beleive .060 is the stock gap correct??

signed,
Just needin' a little guidance.

You aren't supercharged. Use stock gap of .060".

OK, so i need a .060 gap. Do I need a colder heat range??

How do you like the autolites?? If I go with those what number will they be??

Mac, you don't have a supercharged engine with a smaller pulley. Stick with the stock heatrange. One colder MAYBE.

I use NGK V-Power Plugs. Closest thing to stock for your car is TR55.

Read the NGK tech talk Techinfo article. Good spark plug info.
