(running out to car... wrenching... running back)... yep, they are BCPR8ES, alright. Whew.

Yep, not safe to assume - that's why that gap coin still sits in my toolbox from days of yore (I used NGK on my Nissan as well - except they were platinums).

On a side note, I do appreciate the feedback - but probably like you, sometimes there are a hundred things going on, and I had a brain fart in typing. Nitpicking sucks when it occurs (we all do it). Hope I put those pistons and cams in correctly (probably going to have an indie do it for me). Hope it runs great afterwards.

When I put the tune together, knowing how I drive, the 8's have been a great addition. Maybe I'll try the 7's next time to see how they do, who knows. :cheesy:
i think the bus just came and took you to school. dang

im gonna go check my plugs now :D
