i've heard people going a step colder, and then other ways, what is the best way to go to introduce your car too boost, ngk? zex plugs? I also have a msd 6A box in my car if that makes a difference.

yes they do

u need a spark plug that is 1 or 2 steps colder, reason being is that if they arent colder then they will get too hot and either A) melt down B) cause detonation or C) both

Definitely run colder plugs, 1 or 2 degrees cooler depending on your boost levels. Also you should close the gap on the plugs otherwise you will probably start blowing out the spark. I'd gap them down to about .030 or so. My friends with boosted Honda's run Autolite or NGK plugs. Stock ignition on the Honda is pretty good, but since you've already got the MSD might as well keep running it.

napa auto is where i'd look first... in the FI sticky on top theres a code sheet for the NGK spark plugs. i think thats where it is...

NGK > all other spark plugs hands down, and im not the only person to say so.....

NGK are great plugs. Don't run Platinum plugs, stick with the basic copper plugs and just change them every so often (every 1 or 2 oil changes).

NGK is what I've always run. BCPR7ES is the part number for one step colder, but not v-power.

I'm running the NGK iridium's . Havn't changed them yet and running on stock gap. Should i close the gap in pushing the s/c up to 9 soon? plugs only have like 4 or 5 k on them.
