    Default spark plugs

    For all of you guys out there that buy tons of spark plugs. Where do you get them. And also I'm running an NGK 4554 right now is that a pretty good plug on a mild blown alky deal or would something else be more desirable?

    There is no such piece as a "mild blown alcohol" engine.....I use a 9 for a heat range on my alky motor

    9 being a little cooler than the 8 I'm running now? I say mild in a fairly loose sense of the word only in the 1150 range on HP and I know that's only scratching the surface of this fuel. Not a max effort setup by any means

    yes the 9 is colder....is your plug showing heat? I have noticed that some people new to methanol will run a fat engine and put a hotter plug in it

    GREAT! Only .20 more than Jegs, and if you live in SoCal you get to pay Moonbeam his percentage on top of that.

    I use (sparkplug.com)

    FYI -- I was at O`rileys auto parts store two weekends ago and I`d thought I`ll ask if they have the ones I run. the lady says no buy we can get them. I said no thanks I buy them online and their around $1.00 a piece when I buy 100 not $3.79 like yours. she says we`ll price match two days later and a two mile drive and a little over $100.00 bucks my box of spark plugs were there...
    I never thought to see if Jegs or Summit carries plugs before. Before Steve Sharp told me about sparkplug.com I would just go Clay Smiths and buy however many I needed.... $100.00 bucks dont buy you that many when your paying retail... Also with my new motor deal it seems like I`m going thru a crap load these days when it isn`t blowing a head gasket....

    I see the problem I was having with the site. It doesn't tell you that the price goes down with QUANTITY. Its pretty significant too!

    may have to reconsider where I get my plugs. I had been pay right at 2.00 a plug for 100pcs.
    They sell 100pcs for 1.75.
    I knew about the site but the per piece price never seemed all that great. Now I see why. Thanks.

    What's the trick? I just went to sparkplug.com and asked for 100 of the NGK R5671A-8 4554 plugs and the price dropped from $2.89 ea to $1.75 ea ($175.00 for 100) ....

    How do I get the $1.00 ea for 100 plugs?
