SHO Spark plugs
Anyone hear if they changed the time to change the plugs due to cracking? Was told that it was changed from 100hrs to 50 hrs...any truth??
ALSO, Anyone have a good place to buy the NGK LFR6A plugs cheaper than dealer
@ $11.00 each??
Thanks in advance...

Haven't seen the plugs anywhere and not even listed on the NGK site. Some folks have the LFR6A-11 but not the 6A. Strange...

I found the cr9eb for my FXHO, @ O'reilly auto parts for $3.39 plus tax, the best on the web, was $6.25, from e-bay.
I gave Michele a call at my local O'reilly's, and she says 3-5 days, at least, and is e-mailing the factory for time and price. When she calls back, I will update.
bpunta, how much different was the gap, did you use anit-seize compound, did you use a torque wrench, and if you did, what inch pounds did you use?

I'm not a big fan of NGK plugs. Anyone know what the Autolite equivilant would be? Also anyone running more boost 10+ psi gone to any colder plugs?

Other than that there is no differences according to the specs. I suppose the only reason they are different part numbers is because of the gap. These are "V power" plugs (Electrode is shaped like a "V") and technically you're not supposed to adjust the gap on them.
I don't use a torque wrench. If the plugs are brand new, the metal gasket on them hasn't been pressed. Tighten them to about 3/4 turn past "handtight". If they aren't new, it's 1/4 turn.
And yes, ALWAYS use anti-seize. It's cheap insurance. A $10 bottle on eBay will probably last the rest of your life!
