You can try it to see if it works without paying, then pay later if it does. Sound good?

I should be home around 8.

I bet that my mileage in my NA 1.8l Subaru is worse than yours, and no I'm not bragging.

Maybe you might have a few more miles on it. No I put coppers in when I was trying to pinpoint my awesome misfire issues, going back to NGKs. Coppers don't last long at all.

Your tuner didn't ask you to run copper plugs with e85? I know that's what Ron wanted me to run when I was going to use that fuel.

He did but if your not making **** loads of hp you should use stock type plugs. We'll see if the ngk are good enough or back to new coppers.

Staying with the twin plate that's in it. I'm just doing whatever needs to be done on the cheap so I can sell the car, and investing 500 bucks in to a new flywheel and clutch goes directly against that.

Unless someone wants the twin plate? I should have it pulled by Tuesday or Wednesday.

Yeah it's different with e85. The colder plugs were causing issues with some tuners.

Couldn't you just run the BKR6E Copper - stock heat range plugs, instead of the BKR7E - 1 step colder plugs?

The only shop in the area I'd tip my hat to would be Force Engineering in Plainwell. They are a DSM shop mainly, but the work they do is stellar. The other shops in the area don't deserve to keep receiving business, and that's exactly why I'm trying to push you elsewhere.
