    does anyone have imput on the use of these Iridum tip plugs - I know they burn hotter than platinum (+1200 deg F) for use with nitrous.
    Question is, is there any real advantage using these with reg gas or is there a potential for causing damage?

    Are you running NOS?
    NO?
    Then you do not need them= wast if money.

    Why do you want to run such a hot plug?

    Question is, is there any real advantage using these with reg gas or is there a potential for causing damage?

    Gust get the biggest coil Accell makes.(for a hot spark)
    Then test it by sticking a plug wire to your toung..;) .........:waving:

    Do you think that the spark is being blown out by the turbulence in your combustion chamber?
    Do you need a hotter spark to ignite the fuel you are burning?

    I think you will be fine with a set of platinums.

    every day auto mechanic here.

    USE THE O.E.M. PLUGS. less problems in the end on bone stock motors. chased down to many running problems all back to wrong brand and or range plugs. its not worth it . payup :salute:

    100% agree as far a stock engine's go. Whatever plug they're factory equipped with always seem to work the best. Now the iridum plugs are very good, as the technology has come a long way but their best for use in a performance application and you won't see the benefit verses cost in a stock or daily driver application.
