local auto parts stores usually have a couple different heat ranges in stock... however they only list what the recommended factory heat range is of the vehicle you tell them... so they will not know what your talking about as most workers are ignorant of such facts.

most the time you can just ask them to look up the ngk part # for the plug to see if they stock them... without having some turd tell you "thats not what the computer says". Click the image to open in full size.

My car loves the NGK 3330 plugs. This is the BCPR7ES, 2 step colder, .032 pregapped plug. I get them from advanced/discount auto parts all the time. Just tell them u need the NGK 3330. Sometimes they have them, sometimes they dont, just depends on your store. But these plugs work fantastic for me, and I sure you would have great results as well, and best of all there very cheap.

if you want an immediate answer, i believe they are 2 step but i am not sure on that. call up sparkplugs.com they will definitely answer you with a solid response.

well i went to napa and they pulled up the ngk BKR6E-11 for the stock replacment plug for 1.8 DOHC vtec motor. so i asked for 1 step colder and he gave me BKR5E-11. i told him i was looking for BKR7E-11 and he said that was 1 step hotter. i see so many mixed responses on here. so whats the deal are the BKR5E-11 hotter or colder?

Larger the number = colder the plug.

Directly from NGK's site.

7's are what you want.

Just to add to ladysman post:

6's: 300-350whp level
7's: 350whp-450whp level
8's: 450whp-600whp level

I pretty much use the 7's in everything i tune and run, which is overkill. You'll get better gas mileage and partial throttle response with a hotter plug since it combusts the mixture greater.

I think domestic sparkplugs are the opisite of honda plugs... going up is cooler in a honda and going up in a domestic is hotter. I could be wrong but that is what I was told at a autozone... you never know what you get at those places.

Agreed. They actually have a shorter insulator tip compared to the bkr7e's that i used to run. The shorter insulator tip the better, the further the tip sits into the combustion chamber the more heat it is exposed to... which can lead to guess what? I learned that from my tuner on my last trip to the dyno.

Bringing this one back up. I see the debate between the two spark plugs.

BKR7e and BCP7e's. Is it 7e or 7es... and i saw a post that said to get plugs without the -11 at the end? whats the difference? As far as gapping goes, i see most run a .030 gap. Is there like a certain gap for an X amount of power? im gonna be running around 300whp. what gap for that?

With a lower number like .026 that would be making the gap smaller corret? for more power? im dumb and new at this.
