Well, I had overheating at CMP and got it retuned by Dan with ProDyno and that helped, but not completely. After returning to Raleigh and started driving in slow traffic again I noticed lots of lugging under 2500 rpm. I also noticed some blue smoke upon startup and a more powerful odor than normal. Dan adjusted the tune, but no change. Well, I went out and splurged $17.50 on a set of NGK TR6's and pulled the $90.00 set of Brisk plugs that I got from LFP last year. Guess what ... no more lugging, no more blue smoke, and the odor is gone! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: Listen to the tuners ... the tried & true NGK's are the ticket. :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf:

Brisks definately aren't, that's for sure. Back when they came out I had a set in & drove to TeamFord for a dyno day. For giggles we swapped them out while on the rollers with my 1 year old Denso Iridiums (read:used up) & the Densos picked up 2-3 rwhp & 5rwtq over the wonder plugs. It'd been said Brisks were worth 10rwhp/tq. Proved not to be the case.

Congrats on your newfound driveability & power :thumbsup:

I use the TR6's in mine gapped at .35. These plugs are 2 heat ranges colder and are needed when adding boost. A bunch of Whipple and KB cars use them too :thumbsup:

we never had any luck with the Brisks either. I have a case of them that Im using as a door stop....just remember to check your gapping periodically as hit boost cars tend to cause the plugs to open and close gapping..

some cars dont like TR6s either...sometimes you just have to try different plugs until you find which ones work best with your car.. out of all of them tho we have had the best luck with the TR6s

for as often as you need to change plugs the price of the TR6s and performance make them a good choice..

Good point and I don't want to be spending $80+ dollars everytime I decide to change out the plugs for the high dollar ones.
