    They have kits that were from the factory, they were a square shape and hooked up to the top of the hood so the ram air holes you have could be functional.

    I'm asking if you know why a hotter plug would be better than a colder plug or vise/versa? the autolite 103 I got is colder than the fac recommended 106

    colder is better for higher compression, f/i, go with the factory recomended until you do things to the car the factory don't recommend
