Default Plugs..

Threw in some TR-55 V powers last night. 20 min for the front, 30 for the rear. Not to shabby for the first change on this car for me.

Things i've noticed. In Mid 90 degree heat today running up to SSEi95'* place, my car had NO heat soak. She was damn strong. I'll put up some pix of my old plugs, they're slightly white, but all are still in one piece.

When I changed mine, one of the stock AC Delco'* broke off. Luckily, it broke off before the head/bolt on it, so I could still get them out. I dont recommend going 122,xxx on stock plugs. They dont like to stay together after that.

Wasn't out there for times, just 60'* basically (still beating S2 L67'* of the line) and the whoopping I put on 1993SLE.

AlsoI don't recall many N/A around here go to the 55'*... Probably pull them end of summer and see what they look like.
