    ive checked through the search section for this with no luck. i was wondering what would be the best plugs to get considering my car has had a stage 2 revo remap? not sure if this would make a difference (wether they get hotter or draw more current) but thought id check before i invest in some.

    also anyone know the cheapest place to purchase some?


    thanks in advance gary

    BKR6EIX - iridium plugs with 0.8mm gap. IK20's which some people use are 1.1mm gap and this can be too big...certainly caused me misfire issues when the engine was hot.

    PFR7Q are whats recommended for an s3, but BKR7E are the not platinum equivalant...so will require changing more often.

    Actaully, the "7"s in NGK are cooler than the stock which is a "6" plug, (from audi).

    I use the 7s and use the cheap as chips BKR7Es just change every 7k miles

    Its also worth bearing in mine when converting from platinum to copper you should go one heat range hotter.
    So i would have though BKR8E be a more popular choice lol
