NGK BR6ES vs BR8ES
« on: July 27, 2013, 07:46:07 PM »
Many of you mention the BR8ES for an AVL and I'm wondering what the difference is to the 6ES that I have in currently. I also never gap the plug out of the box, getting a tool now, .7mm seems to be the consensus, right?

I'm at about sea level and it's rather hot (Baton Rouge, LA)

Thank you!

Samir

The higher the number, the heat range is colder. Check this link for the info

The NGK BR8ES center insulator tip runs cooler than the BR6ES sparkplug.

Seems like I've seen the 8 recommended for the Iron Barrels and I know the 6 is just about perfect for the UCE.

With the AVL having an aluminum/steel cylinder like the UCE, it might work best for that engine.

If your 6 doesn't show indications of running too hot then that might be the best one to use.

Thanks guys,
I got the BPR6ES and gapped it at .7mm.
There's some improvement.
