I run BKR9EIX, what I like about this plug, is that it has a 5/8 hex instead of 13/16. This makes it easier to get the socket in the tight confines of the 911. specially if you are running twin plug. Word to the wise you must NOT use those generic sparkplug gap tools on iridium plugs. The ground strap must be bent by itself and not using the electrode as a fulcrum. Rule of thumb is for every 100HP over stock, you run "1" heat range colder.
Didn't know that EVX are discontinued but B8EGV works equally well. I found 9's too cold. Frankly, even 8's get fouled unless you don't give it a boot now and then.
