    You risk detonation more. But, when I first started with nitrous, I used the denso irdiums for about 2 bottles and it didn't seem to hurt. I have the tr6s now. So, I don't think it would do too much. But I really don't know for sure.

    Just as long as the gap isn't to big you will be ok but if it is to big IT WILL FLAME OUT and then when it relights BOOM and you will be doing a rebuild. I have seen this so many times from my customers and it is not a pretty site. Just ahd one come in last week and it totally rip the piston pin out of the piston and broke two rods in half. It also has a hole under number seven piston that i can stick my hand in. He was only running a 100 shot. This is not somehting to play around with. Take the time and change the plugs.

    Yup, change them out. Why risk significant motor damage due to spark plugs?

    Thanks guys. I'm doing a Zex 125 wet setup. I like the fuel managment system and throttle position sensor they have.

    Your fine with a 125 AS LONG AS FUEL PRESSURE IS HOLDING STEADY!!!!!!
    If pressure is dropping while on the "unit" you are leaning the inj. while also dropping fuel pressure to the fuel sol........If you have a good pump don't worry about it!!!!!!!!!!
    I ran 175 NX on stock plugs while pulling 4 degrees of timing for 28 15lbs. bottles worth on a 05 LS2..
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    I've ran NOS for 10 years on the stock plugs, LT1, LS1, and soon to be LS2. I've ran them dry. Ran the LT1 to lean backfires. Ran the LS1 to lean nose dives, love that knock sensor. Now have a Predator to monitor O2 & knock on the LS2. Watch. That'll be the one I blow up. Screw it. It's the one with the warranty.

    Oh yea. I just saw a blown up intake because of a sticking solinoid and I remembered. I also ran NOS with no solenoid. I just ran the line off the bottle to the air box-nozzle and opened the valve to go fast. It worked. Just to much hassle to work that damn valve and drive.

    Oh yea again. No window switch. 1500 RPM or just where ever I'm at.
