Spark plugs

Hi, I was wondering if any one has 2.1 kenne bell supercharged or any other brand supercharged. The question is what kind spark plugs are you using?

I've heard of a lot of people running motor craft coppers but I can't remember the part number off hand. And people usually change them every oil change or so under boosted applications

I have been running tr6 on 17psi at 11:1 compression no problem. If you burnt the tips off a cooper plug be thankful it was the cooper plug and not a piston. Your tune is way to lean. I hope you have a custom tune and not a crap can tune. You can also run tr6ix for longevity but only if your tune is spot on with the tr6.

It might be the tune they gave your car that's making it act funny. If they dyno'd it why wouldn't they give you a sheet with the results?

Does your spark plug have a washer on it?? If so it has the wrong plugs in it period. All 4.6 mustang plugs are taper seated plugs.

I put them in so fast I honestly don't know..I did however compare them to the old plugs which looked the same..I just bought the car with a 100,000 miles on it and I doubt they had been changed before..they may be be the wrong ones but I I'll look and if they are ill change them..

I would recommend a set of NGK TR6 gapped at .032. The plugs do not need a .028 gap on your power or boost level. Double check the plugs though because your plugs should be taper seat

I still say this might be a troll user. If not its one of the most incompetent installs I've ever seen but then... I grabbed my popcorn and finished it a long time ago...

Yes I'm an ***.
