  • spark plugs on a 2.2

    so, after my problems with the car and the 2 cylinder debacle, it's been said to me that my plugs are probably fucked. so i'm wondering what plugs all you 2.2 ion owners out there are using and/or recommend.

    i use champion copper SRT-4 Plugs.

    they're longer but they reach the combustion chamber unlike the stock ones.

      [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/confused.gif[/img] wouldn't this also slightly alter the compression ratio?

        Hopefully....and the further down into the compchamber you put the spark the better...well, to a point.

          yeah, too far down and i imagine you'd hear some nice crunchy sounds.

          any other recommendations besides the Skittles plugs? (which i'm not even sure would work great for me since i'm N/A and elvis is FI)

              a a plug is a freaking plug, stock they come with platnium so if you're so anal about plugs just get the a/c delco stockers.

                I would get the same plug, but a step or two hotter for the N/A 2.2 . Elvis is running supper 18psi boostsess so he needs the colder plugs.

                  oh wow. forgive me, oh great elvis. i apologize for A) not knowing as much about cars as you and B) for trying to actually learn.

                    It's not exactly that. It's the assumptions that made him say that.
