I've got the NGK iridiums available now for the Bullitts'. They're the NGKs, not the Denso, although they're more than likely the same plug. I wanted to wait for the Genuine NGKs with the great results with these in the past.

I've been amazed by the press..." +5-6 hp" I've seen in the 5.0 mag test sessions on the Cobras.

I've got them priced at $65.00 a set with the Densecharger and $69.00 a set, delivered, by themselves.

I'll gladly donate a set to someone who is headed to the dyno!

If they show +5-6 hp on the Bullitt heads this would be a great Bang for the Buck!!

I'm putting them in my Mustang this weekend to judge them against the V-POWERS.

Hey JP, I'm about to run #4584 at the dyno again, to see the gains from my x-pipe and Diablo chip. If you would like to donate a set for me, we can change them in between runs and see the results. :smile:

Moljay's a good choice John!
John, i know it's been discussed before but what are the advatages to the iridiums and are there any potential drawbacks. i don't understand a lot about hotter or colder "sparks" and/or "fatter" sparks.

Performance Distributors has a Screamin' Demon Coil Pack package for the 4.6 2V that provides increased spark capabilities and a hotter & "fatter" spark. they say that this also provides more efficient fuel-burn capability.

what does all that mean to every day driving AND performance AND do any of you Gear Heads recommend it??? ( the Coil Pack and/or the iridiums)
i've been wanting more information on "spark" and how it affects performance for a long time now!!
i would REALLY appreciate your help and input!!!

If you're looking for a SC guinea pig, let me know. I have access to a dyno anytime I need it(friends own it).

The only advantage I see, is that iridium,being a real tough alloy,allows the use of a smaller diameter tip,for greater spark energy,with less drain on the ignition system,more concentrated hotter spark.

SoCalBullitt,do they make the DENSOs to replace the AutoLite 53s and are they a no resistor type plug? That is what I use in my 351W. John,do they make the NGKs for my application above?

Thos interested in dyno results can view the following:

http://www.iridiumpower.com/dynochart.asp?id=4

Bear in mind that the plugs really improve performance on supercharged or nitrous equipped engines.

TIM BARNABY: Email me your info ASAP.

Hey Barnaby:

Aren't you a little weary of using a different spark plug after Vortech was so adamant about not using any other plug other than the stock in their instructions. Let me know how they work out if you give them a try.


SoCalBullitt:

I am in Irvine and would love some more info on the Denso plugs. My Bullitt also has the Vortech S/C on it.

Jay,
I don't read instructions...I find they hinder my ability to void warranties. :grin:

Lee Wilson, of Stangnet, is going to dyno the iridiums along with the Densecharger 100mm. I wish I had the TB pipe for the Bullitts ready. Maybe Lee could do a follow up session with regular NGK V-POWERS as a comparison. At $12.00 a set for the patented V-POWERS the iridiums have a tough act to follow.

I hope they gain the 5-6 in the ad as this would be a good performance/cost ratio.

I'm putting them in my Mustang today. I can judge a 5 hp difference in this car. They will replace the V-POWERS in the same heat range.

The iridiums were originally around $80. a set so the price I posted at $69., delivered should be a good savings.

A hotter spark,will insure no misfire under high boost conditions,and in hot cammed,carbed setups,a cleaner idle and better response. I have used the old trick of clipping the ground electrode back so the edge was at the center of the center electrode and had a nice sharp edge. Works well for a while until the edge wears down.
