What plugs do use in your chevy and why?
AC because they perform better and last longer.
I used to run Bosch Platinum but switched to AC after seeing the results of the last Spark plug post.
The AC's give an easier start in the morning & mileage is better.
AC Delco. Because theywork the best. Are there other kinds of spark plugs?
AC Delco, also after seeing the last big post on this.
AC DELCO R45TSX
in all my SBC engines
because they are extended tip
and they always burn a perfect nice light tan and no bumps or black or oil or wet at all, not even a trace
can flip the ign switch as fast as i can and engines will always start right up immediately and idle, not even have to touch gas, unless is cold, then pump once to set choke
great plugs 10 out of 10 score
i am really super picky about what i run in my engines, only AC plugs and oil filters, only mobil 1 or havoline oil, oil will not be left in long enough to turn dark before i dump it,
very picky, my engines have to run perfect and be spotless or i will be pissed
i have ngk's cuz they are short enough so im not burning plug wires on my headers, the Accel's were to short and expensive...
AC delco, they are cheap and work great. i have thought about trying some NGKs next time though, its all i run in my bikes.
I usually use AC plugs--why??--because thats what they came with factory--but I've used Autolite plugs with good results. I never liked champion plugs,maybe they are better nowadays since they went to a "copper plus" design,but I had too many of them croak at low mileage,and I was not impressed with their performance..they seemed to die if you flooded them,an AC plug will come back,but once a champion plug gets flodded,it wont start until you put new ones in..
I had poor luck with NGK plugs in my Honda C110 I had as a teen,I hated them with a passion--I finally found a place to buy autolite plugs that fit it,and only had to replace it twice!--I bet I put 50 NGK and Champion's in it in lss than a year--it would just shut off and refuse to start,and it had good spark!--put in a fresh plug,it would fire right up!--so I wont waste any money on NGK plugs,or Champions in my chevy's...
Another reason why the 6.2 Diesel is superior!!--Real trucks dont have spark plugs!--or Coils,Distributors,Wires,Points,Modules,Condensers,Crank Sensors,Carbs---
AC Delco everything!
Where is the last spark plug post?
AC Delco's with my TPI 350. They run just fine and stay clean. When I had a carb the motor didn't run as clean and would foul plugs after awhile. When I ran a carb the motor seemed to like Champion Truck plugs (#4018's) the best.
the brand thats supot to be in it A/C DELCO and yes i have heard good about auto lites if needed.
I am running the Accell Header plugs on mine. Have ran AC Delco's the whole time before these, just trying them out to see how they perform....
Accel Shorties so I also don't toast my plug wires on my headers.
