    Spark Plugs?

    I'm about ready to put some longtubes in and was wondering what spark plugs I should buy... Seeing as how I'll have a little better access to them with the headers off... Thanks!

    Then you won't have to change them every 12K

    Thumbs up

    At about 15,000 miles on my TA I installed the ngk TR55 plugs because just about everyone on the board uses them.I changed my plugs last week with the car having 35,000, but I went with the AC41985 plugs, which is a stock plug.I have found that it idles better to me and I want have to change them as often.The TR55 may be better but I just can't deal with the content plug changing. I want be changing them again until I get about 75,000 miles on it.The car sits running and you can't even tell it unless you tap on the gas. I am sold on the stock plugs.

    Although there is something to say for stock ACDelco replacement plugs if a stock plug fits your application.

    havent change the plugs yet on a f body only on my other cars. is it true that you have to do the # 8 plug from under the car.

    make sure you buy some anti - sieze for the threds of the plugs. and some sealer grease for the boots and top ends. only like 4.00 if you buy the small one time packs but great for the later use and utillitiy

    Changed 3 sets of spark plugs

    I have found out that taking the coil packs off makes everything much easier. Although it might take 30 minutes longer but it will save your hands.

    NGK TR55 this time. Last change I used the TR6's, I liked those better being a cooler plug, the the TR6's seemed to prevent knock a little better.

    Yes I do. I don't really care for the NGK's myself. If you really want a irdium plug which some do than I put the Denso in my customers and that part # is 5325.
