I was curious if anyone has changed their plugs out? If so, what brand and what gap are you using?

I'm thinking about changing mine because I just put the Stealth Tune in (WOW, by the way!) and since the car was running richer, I'd bet that a new set of plugs would improve performance even more.

Any ideas?

If your not spraying or blown, then the stockers should be fine. If your spraying say over a 150 shot or pulling more than 6 psi or so then the NGK's are a good safe bet to help guard against detonation.

I have a maggie, but i use ngk tr6 gapped at .40
It did a great dyno run.. the tr55 is a hotter plug.. but becareful if you have a SC and you gap too big, it will actually blow out the spark.. thats why i went down to .40 gap.. and man it runs so much better now slow speeds or wot it screams..
5 out of 8 of my plat plugs that came with the v were melted and/or cracked.. pieces missing from the ceramic part up by the tip... ya know where those pieces went.. uhg. i hope they blew thru, so far no problems...

but i would suggest all V maggie owners and i know it sux and it is hard to get to them, but check your plugs before you end up with pieces of them where you dont want them.

Hey Blitzer....Your maggie might have a little to do with that plug problem!
No kidding,, thats why i said ALL MAggie owners should chk there plugs.. ive said several times.. but, knowing what i know now, even if i did not have a maggie, i would still check them.. hey do what ya want, its your ride..
