Do you think this would be worth the effort on our FoFo's? Below is a link to an article if you need more info.
Not sure if it would be worth it since I don't think we have a 'squish' area and the plugs go straight into the center of combustion chamber like a Hemi, did anyone index plugs on the 426 Hemi?
Now then a gap-less plug like BRISK LGS or BOSH +4 might do a little.
