    I know this subject has been brought up many times now. But I would like to clear some of it up. One person writes that the plug is hitting the piston. The answer he got back was to put in a shorter reach plug...Very bad advice! Instead do not buy a plug with a "P" in it such as NGK B6phs. The p stands for projected electrode . That is why it hits, get one with out the P in it..take this one for example.

    In all my testing the following plug is by far the best. NGK iridium not put the NGK iridium BPR7HIX. Once again the p would be the projected and most likely hit the piston. The 7 stands for the heat range/as the number goes up the plug is considered colder

    the iridium plug goes for around 10.00 and sure is worth it. I hope nobody minds that I brought this up again. And hope this helps those that dont know or unsure

    don't worry about it, I should have been a little clearer about the following thing..This pertains to a dome piston and not the flat top ones. As far as I know,thanks
