    Nope even the TBI motors prefer AC plugs. but since you are right on the edge when was the last time the motor had a full tune up?

    Not too long ago, put on a new cap and rotor about 9 months ago, new MSD ignition coil about 6 months ago. Spark plugs and plug wires were about a year and a half ago. I know the catylic is 17 years old, but I put it on a gas analyzer and it passes, but just barely. I gaped the plugs to .060 instead of .035 and it made an improvement emission wise.

    I've always liked NGK plugs, I use them in all my small motors and they are just awesome, extremely hard to foul, so I figured the Iridium's for my chevy would be even better.

    What would you recommend?

    Can't use copper top plugs with this ignition setup, tried it, and melted the electrodes and caused massive missfires. Even the manual recommends at minimum platinum plugs for this truck.

    Nah, it was a few years ago. I conducted a cylinder balance test, and it easily showed each cylinder was kinda out of wack, put in the AC Delco Platinum's and they were all balanced.

    My truck uses a high voltage ignition system, which is why it melted the copper top plugs, copper top plugs are cold plugs, and I needed hot plugs, which platinum's are.

    So I'm looken for these plugs? http://www.summitracing.com/parts/ACF-41-110/
