Nitrous Question

Alright I'm installing my nitrous set up on Thursday and I got a couple questions. First, I need to run autolites sparkplugs right and a heat range cooler and what should they be gapped at? Second, should I run 93 or 89 octane? Third, anything else that I should know so I can get everything ready cause Friday is the last day the track is open here and I want to have every thing ready.
Thanks.

if they are going to stay in the car while daily driving, go one stage colder. if you are going to have a set of spark plugs for the track then get two stages colder. i don't use nitrous on the streets so i just run stock plugs until at the track. they are kinda *****y to change on our cars (the 4.6l guys are lucky, they are easy on them) so do what you want. motorcraft copper AWSF-22C's are two stages colder and AWSF-32C's are one. -42C's are stock equivalent. i don't know the autolite equivalents but you can ask any chain auto store. gap bigger than .035-.038. don't go bigger than .045 though. run as high octane as you can, 91 or 93 depending where you live and what is available.

Did you know 4.2 F150's come with a "34" heat range factory.
