Just go to Autozone and they have them in a box at the cash register for a buck.

What plug gap? I aint got any gap! lol

We'll ok, around .062-.065

My ground electrode is cut back 2mm so it is barely covering the copper core! I then indexed the plugs so they were all facing the exhaust ports This took a few boxes of SP-463s to find 4 plugs that would screw in facing the direction I wanted. Expensive but worth the 4hp increase at the wheels. I threw in an MSD coil and 8.5mm wires for good measure. This made a VERY noticeable difference across the board.

I suggest other people try this combination!~ I can promise you if you do it correctly, you won't be disappointed!

I believe our coil pack can handle the bigger gap but our stock plug wires are what limit the juice getting through.

You are right atx, the Denso Iridiums are already pre gapped and are ready to install out of the box.

I am having a real hard time trying to find a set, or any of the AZFS22C's. One store I called told me they are autolites now, but that they are platinum, I kinda figured the C stands for copper...I also tried the sp463 after I did a search for more info on these plugs...4 stores, nobody lists them or heard of them...
