Default What plugs should i run on the V with nitrous???

Changing the plugs in the V. I pulled out TR-55's (which im told are good for nitrous) but i'm not sure if these are the best choice of the options out there. I've heard in the past that TR-6's are good as a nitrous plug but i figured i'd post up since i'm sure someone here who has more experience with nitrous will have a good suggestion for me.

Let me know asap fellas! Thanks!!

I guess I should add more info...

Stock bottom end and stock heads as of now so it's stock compression. Rest of mods are in my sig and I'm spraying a 150 shot. It's tuned for the gas and A/F stays right at 11.5 across the curve according to my buddy that I bought the car from. Said he's gonna give me all the dyno graphs with all the tuning info on it tomorrow.

I know that but I was hoping someone with some nitrous experience would have a specific plug in mind that will work well.

My boy at G-Force says TR-6's gapped at .35. I guess that's the route I will go unless someone suggests something else.

Yeah... Allen is a good dude. He said the tr-6's are good but they were the old school choice plug for spray but for anything over 100 shot, the br7ef's are where it's at.

Lol! Appreciate ya! I need to get some vids of this thing. That 8.8 makes it so much more fun to drive cause I have not one single worry about the diff. Lol put creative steel shifter bushings in it with a Katech short throw and it feels amazing!! Solid motor mounts took away all the driveline slop. Routed my nitrous lines all nice and neat while we were messin with it. She's coming along...
