NGK B8EGV always worked for me. Did they get sooty on street? Yupp. Did they ever missbehave while wringing out the cars neck? Nope. I must be getting old...being conservative and all
I am pretty easy on my car because;

1. My need for speed is satisfied on sportbikes.

2. I can't afford to blow the car up and have to rebuild it.

3. I don't have a 3rd reason ... sorry. Please go back to 2.


I imagine the copper plugs will be fine. I'll just run them until the cars starts running crappy and then change them out.
