In the process of putting the new motor together and took the spark plugs out of the old head. I had been shipped SPI spark plugs instead of Zetec and theu were RECESSSED back into the head, they didn't even stick into the combustion chamber.

Part number is IT16 for the SPI and ITV16 for the Zetec

And I still managed 170whp and a 14.6 at the track.

Almost makes me want to put it back together the way it was with the right plugs and see what it could do but oh well.

I will post pics, it is amazing.

dang goat I can't believ you put those in did'nt you compare them to your old ones just to make sure? I got some plugs the other day and I was like WTF! the threads were twice has long they had the wrong part number in the compute and if I would have put them in it would have for sure hit the piston. All well that ends well I guess. I bet you'll check them from now on huh? lol[;)]

I was young and stupid, what can I say....but you are right, def checking from now on. To hell with trusting people shipping the right things.

On a side note, I have a free set of Denso SPI plugs laying around in good gondition [:)]
