Default What spark plugs to use in 402 LS2 stroker

Are the plugs the same depth as the LS1 plugs? And what would be a good plug for my 402 LS2 engine? Please see details in my sig. The CR should be about 11.0:1...

We have had good experience with the NGK's. Not for sure if a colder plug is needed in your setup.

TR6 if you run stocker style cylinder heads. If you run ET or another that new cast check with the manufacturer because they use a different plug.

11.0 is fine for pump gas. My engine is not that high but several friends are 11.0 or higher and have 0 issues with that compression and pump gas.

I'm running 11.8 CR on shitty California 91 octane. with the right cam and the right tune it's not a problem
