Please do a search. This has been covered at GREAT length recently, and there are quite a few options and opinions.
Heavily modded engines may need to use a different plug than a stock engine and there are several types of each plug.....

But they are still cheaper than anyone else aren't they for the Subaru shocks? $469 shipped is the cheapest I have seen it.

Everywhere else is $500 +

stock plug is NGK PFR 6 G, not GG

weirdest thing happened when i put my BKR7E's in... it's running smoother than ever and there's NO surging anymore between shifts. clutch-in, revs drop. no drama.

it's surged from day one. in fact i changed my driving style to accomodate it (let off the gas earlier then clutch-in).

for some reason it doesn't make sense to me that plugs should have done that. i changed plugs and dropped in some amsoil 5w-30 at the same time. i'm pretty sure the oil didn't do this all by itself
