What do you guys run in your Classics and do they make a big difference? I have the "Rapidfire" plugs in mine, and my brother(who owns a Classic AND a 200sx)thinks I should change to what he runs-NGK Platinums....

From my experience, stick with the NGK Platinum. They came with the car and most people get the best performance out of them. I made the mistake of buyig Bosch Platinum Plus 4 and they sucked power from my engine.

I personally buy the non-Platinum NGKs for about 1/10th the price and change them about 5 times as often as you would a Plat. I figure this way I can afford brand new plugs for track days and autocrosses and I have the added bonus of keeping tabs on how my car is running from reading the plugs. my 2 cents,

well I use standard plugs ngk brk 6e
and for free horse power most race cars index their plugs! which means facing the open end of the plug towards the intake manifold. this can be done by using spacers from moroso for flat seat plugs.this is a tuning tip that race cars use . most people don't know about it but when i did it to my plugs for the first time, it felt like I just gave my bitch a tune up or some thing. you need a sp wrench that looks like a T and mark one end so you know how your pugs are sitting. get the tool at R&S straus or pepboys and put black tape on one end. before you dis this try it and then talk! nissan recomends 30-35 sp gap on regular ngk's since I have msd I put mine on 35 1/2 .haven't lost yet but i'm retired from racing in the streets!

I use the 22401-20j06 on mine. (non platinum one heat range colder plug) b/c of the nitrous. the best to use w/o the nitrous is a brk6e though.

Yeah, my brother runs NOS in his 98 and a Turbo in the 91, and he said the same things you guys did. I thought I was having a problem with a plugged Catalytic converter because I kept getting this rotten egg smell, but my mechanic told me that the cats on these cars are pretty resilient, and that I just needed to tune up the car(which I can do myself)-I run those "Rapidfire" plugs, because the ones that were in the car were fouled(long-term storage) and these plugs were cheap.....

Chris, I think you mean Bosch Platinum plus 4, right? I've never heard of NGK Platinum plus 4.
Anyway, I had the Bosch Platinums Plus 4 on my car and they weren't too good. The performance was better with my old spark plugs. I now use the NGK platinum. They're about $7-$8 a piece.

Can someone give me the low-down on heat ranges? My car is bascially stock except for a K&N drop-in and a Stillen exhaust. What would be the best heat range for my SE-R?

Oh yeah, what's the EXACT gap?
