My dear. You're going pretty deep for a car that you have not had on the road for a while.... Regarding the heat boxes: I realize that you're in Al, and don't really need heat, but I *suggest* that if you're going to get some custom headers, and usually don't see the headers while you're driving that beauty (unless there is something going horribly) - pop for the heat boxes so that you have it IF you need it. I backdated my heat, but it's there when I need/want it (when the temp drops below 50F).

I personally would not run Bosh Platinums in an air cooled car.

Perhaps others will disagree....

It does Scott but I am glad I have heat, as I am a bit older and in North Texas. My system is M&K also.

That was my reason for buying it so I could do this to it. I have other fun cars that I drive all the time. No better way to learn about these than take one apart and put it back together in my opinion.

What would you suggest?
That is what was in there when I bought it. I will be replacing the plugs as it gets built back up.

Glad to hear you have M&K also Steve. I like to look to your car as an example.

You can't buy happiness, but you can buy car parts which is kind of the same thing.

+1 I have used NGKs for years with no trouble. Those Bosch platinums tend to cause pre-ignition.

Bosch also makes a copper plug, not sure of it's availability or correct number.

The headers with the heat exchangers are works of art.

Not ugly. Very nice.

Note that the recommended plug for a ‘79 is different from ‘83. NGK recommends the 7es for my 83. Just mentioning this for those playing along at home. The 5es is a hotter plug. With NGK, the lower the number the hotter the plug.

Thanks for the feedback on the heater boxes. I told Brian at M&K I would go with those the other day.
