    Hey guys, got a 95 GT with 150 wet shot. Manual says strictly not to run platinum plugs with n2o. If anybody runs nitrous, let me know what kinda plugs you run now (brand and PN?) and also if you have any suggestions about which plugs to stay away from, thanks guys

    They might work but I have heard of people complaining and saying they like standard autolites more then some of the platinums out there.

    o.k Here it goes, Get rid of the platinum plugs period. not only are they a hot plug the platinum tip is not the best for nos. always run a step colder pug than normal. I run autolites. the cheap autolites. in the old heads I think the number was 24 so you would run 23's. cobra heads are a totaly different plug and there is no step down. you will just have to watch your gapping.. make sure the timing is retarded and you have plenty of fuel flowing....HOBBS SWITCH. cheap and VERY useful.. good luck!
