Screamin Demon Coil w/ Nitrous?

With a nitrous set-up is it safer to use a screamin demon coil and live wires or could their possibly be more harm from doing so? I have read that it is safer to go with spark plugs with a 1-2 colder heat range when using nitrous, so it questions me to if it will cause harm or not?

the heat range of the plug has nothing to do with how much voltage the coil puts out, and with nitrous, you definitely want a strong spark. so go with your SD and get the colder plugs

Just for a second opinion...^^^ I totally agree, the coil can only help with nitrous.

Will a colder spark effect performance when not using nitrous? I am probably going to go with the ZEX kit (will have a final decision by the end of tonight when I order off of ebay.) Havn't heard anyone say anything bad about ZEX yet. What I am trying to find out is will I lose power numbers if going with a colder plug?

Can someone also explain what heat range has to do with anything? I thought that a bigger spark would be hotter? (hint Screamin Demon Coil/ LiveWires

there's the best explanation of heat ranges I've ever read

a colder plug will change performance slightly when not running nitrous

The colder plug will keep you from having detonation problems with bigger nitrous hits....and it will only slightly effect normal running
