ok first off TRASh those dadgum plugs they are JUNK!!! use only NGK or nippon densio (sp?) plugs. you want a minoum of 2 steps cloder than stock if you can go 3.

gap your plugs to like .028-.030

ise mobil 1 oil it's the best i've found so far.

hi what you mean by colder i really dont get this . is it IK rating ? ( eg. IK20 IK16 found on denso iridium plugs ? if so what IK do i get )

How do i get my plugs gapped ? where do i do it ? do i buy them gapped or i have to take them to a machine shop ?

Yea i used to use mobil 1 in my lancer before i wrapped it around a tree . what rating should i get ?

you don't want to use iridium. you want ngk bcpr7es-11 plugs or something like that. stocks are 5 instead of 7.

They're a few ways you can gap the plugs. I just use one of those coin-gauges, you can also use a feeler gauge.

Just put the gauge in-between the electrode and the strap, and then bend the strap toward the electrode until it reaches the desired gap. You should feel a slight drag of the gauge when you have reached the right clearance.



As to what oil to use, Im not really sure, I just use Mobil 10w-30

hi so these are not the NGK iridium plugs ?? are they safe man ? over here all they are advertising is the iridium and the Racing pro model or something and i was told for turbo i have to get these plugs ( US$ approx 50 for a set of 4 ) . Take note my climate is tropical equatorial . its the same ? im at sea level ( super small island country ) . I just go shopping by part number then heh heh . I got the gapping tool at home . that thing with many lines , mine come in mm , that 0.028 and 0.030 is what ? the distance between the electrode and the gap ? is that number in cm or mm or inches ??

they don;t hold otu well because your a/f raito is much richer in boost than a NA motor thuse can cause some buildup onthe plugs. ir plugs foul out really easy.
