what heat rating? #6 or #7

or are you using the b18b NGK's #5

stock b18a/b PR4 pistons with a non-milled b18c1 head and stock 3 layer head gasket yields 9.7-9.8:1 static CR.

You can use a #6 with a GSR 0.051 in. gap (stock GSR 10.0:1 static CR recommedations). If you find that you aren't getting the gas mileage you like you can drop down to 0.045 in. for the next set.

i just heard that bosch plat will not lose the stock gap..thats all..im not a total technical mastermind here..being that is wrong advice im glad that u have corrected me..also sorry i didnt go enough into detail about why to use platinum plugs or what not.

I can tell you for certain that what you heard is a complete crock of bull...and that whoever told you this has something to sell (i.e. bosch plugs) or has been handed a bunch of bull that they accepted without question and is parroting it back to you without any understanding whatsoever....

not picking on you man...just saying that if you want to support each other here, we gotta not copy those other boards where I see people guessing and giving advice with zero explanation as to why.

I think if you would have said I heard this and I'm not sure if it's right, at least your fellow members could take the advice (with your good intention) in the proper context.

let's try to keep this place helpful to one another.

and helpful means, try not to hype or guess or advise without a reason....

that's all...

cheers

peace
