Quick Plug question

This is my first post but have been reading on here for awhile now. I got an 04 with some mods and nitrous. My question is I was putting some Autolite 103s gapped at 38 for nitrous. I used these plugs about 6months ago and only shot like 10times then I went back to stock no problems. So I put them back in today and I hear a light pop from my exhaust(off road x into flows) at idle. cars runs fine doesn't shake and drives great at all speeds. Its very light and only does it like once a minute or two. It didn't do this before so I was just wondering if anyone else got this before? Should I just get new plugs? I am running a diablo 93tune(only when im not spraying of course) does that have anything to do with it? Thanks

Re: Quick Plug question

i'd re-gap the plugs for a non nitrous setup and see how that treats you...god i bet that car sounds like 4 civics having a circle jerk when you get on it with an o/r x pipe

And you might want to check to make sure the plugs are seated correctly..

Re: Quick Plug question

O/R X isn't near as bad as catback X imo.

Wendell, ask Kyle about his friends silver cammed w/ O/R x. Its Daniel's car I believe (a friend of his) But it doesn't sound half bad. Hell of all people he said if Idle isn't enough out of the pro for me to just go back to an X lol

But Im all about the pro as well.


But OP nitrous can put some stress on plugs, Ive heard those auto lites aren't good for long w/ nitrous. You probably just used them up or something.

But you should join www.moddedmustangs.com, I post most of my tech there, and im usually around there everyday, where as here I only check in occasionaly. and Im looking into nitrous next, would love to get some info from you.

I'm on moddedmustangs alot too I started on this one just bc they have an app for my iPhone lol. I've been running nitrous for alittle over a year now with no problems. If you have any question feel free to ask me. I'm running Zex wet kit mainly 75 shot but have done 100 a few times, Zex window switch, Zex heater and Zex dual purge. Install is pretty easy on our cars.

Yup stock engine. Like I said I run a window switch, smaller gap/colder plugs and ****** timing and make sure bottle pressure is right on for safety. So far so good and I drive it daily.
