Default Advice please nitrous and what plugs to get?

I still need to get plugs Im woundeirng to those nitrous users out there, what plugs you are running I want to get the NGK-BKR7E, but I got a response from Summit Racing saying that the NGK_BKR7E are only 1 step colder than the MY99 R.S. they didnt have listings for the MY00 & MY01 heres the response I got:
The BKR7E is a 14mm 3/4" reach with a 5/8 hex. This plug would be 1 step colder than the plug listed for the 1999 2.5. Unfortunately, I have no listing for the 2001 to determine if there have been any changes.

AC

Should I still get them?

Stay with the stock plug temp, i ran nitrous on my rs and had no problems! your only squeezing for a few seconds at a time. I'v here that the car will run like crap most of the time with a colder plug with out boost?

andy i'd got with at least 1 stage colder if not 2...the 2 stage colder plugs are BR8ES-11....these are available at pep boys...stock number 7986(at least they used to be available there)

You are supposed to go 2 stages colder for nitrous or turbo.

You need to go at least 1 heat range colder to keep things safe when you are "on the bottle". I run NGK BKR7E's in my car and it runs fine on and off the bottle. The stock # is 6097, 'bout $2.50 each. Go get some, and remember to use anti-seize on the threads and dielectric grease on the boots. Good Luck

AndyM, Go 2 ranges colder, but i dont think you should use a standard antiseize product because they use glassbeads which can cause poor conductivity of heat and electricity when the liquid burns/evaporates away and leaves only the beads. Use a copper/bronze brake grease this will leave copper/bronze material which is a very good conducter. of heat and electricity. 22BKEEPER

If your only running a 55 shot or so, 1 heat range colder will be fine. Any bigger shot go 2 heat ranges colder. And who uses brake grease on their spark plug threads? that sounds like a bad idea to me, stick with the anti seize, thats what its designed for. The dielectric grease is designed to keep moisture out of the spark plug wire boot, moisture is bad!

For nitrous applications set it between .030 and .035 . Mine are at .030 right now.
