    New Sparks?

    Hey whats going on, I am about to put a 125 shot of nitrous into my new 1999 z28 camaro. I was reading up on the zex website and it said something about replacing the spark plugs. So far all I have heard is that you should only replace them once you install a 150 shot! What do you guys reccomend?

    i would change them to a step colder to be safe, if u run too hott u'll melt ur plugs and can cause alot of damage... better safe than soffy

    I had my kit for months before I put it in, lots of research! I went with the NGK TR6s. What I read was that you had to swap the plugs and not use Platinum plugs as the extra heat could cause the platinum to break and create bad issues.

    With the Granatelli wires, you get 100% of the energy from the coil to the plug. That means it is perfect for the Nitrous application. It also allows you to run a wider gap without getting ignition/spark blow out

    While I am sure this sounds like a commercial, it does benefit you guys tremendously
