Aren't TR6's and those Autolites both too short for an Ecotec head???

As far as I know the best plug for an ecotec is the NGK LTR6IX-11 and the LTR7IX-1, 1 and 2 steps colder respectively.


Yes they're shorter than normal but still work just fine. Back in the day when all us eco's started spraying they were the only option and as of the last time I sprayed still the only ones I've used as well as many others.

I'm going to check out those NGK's you mentioned because I'd would feel much more comfortable using proper size whether they work fine or not. Which one is 1 step colder and visa versa?

You don't need to get an MSD retard box.


need? no your'e right. for a 50 shot. however retarding the timing is cheap insurance. the msd retard box is like 60 dollars. y would you not do it?

plus it'll give you a step up for running a larger shot in the future.


I'm not saying it's not a bad idea or that it is not worth doing. I'm just saying it isn't necessary or needed for up to a 75 shot.

true, but to my knowledge it's the only thing standing in the way of running a 100 shot.

LTR6IX-11's are one step colder. Im running them in my L61 and i compared(visually side by side) and they are the exact same length as the stock ACDelcos.




its an old concept. time for something new to take the reigns. - Z yaaaa

100 Shot your supposed to upgrade your internals, that's not to say many have still run a 100 shot on a stock eco with only plugs and premium. Worst I heard of directly related to that was a mushroomed intake filter. On the other hand many only did a few runs like that, I don't think I would.
