Default Spark Plug Guru needed


Screw it, I added some more picture and questions.


I'm wondering what all can be clearly identified using the picture below. These plugs are about 50 miles old.So they're very young. My concern are listed below:

1) No browning what-so-ever of the spark plug in question. I expected browning of the porcelain insulator?
2) Where *exactly* is the "timing" mark on this? there are so many marks on the ground strap, that I can't identify it.

Spark # 2, 4, 6, 8 all look like this one. (all in bank 2 of course).
Sparks # 3 and 7 look like the picture as well.
Unfortunately, sparks # 1 and 5 have much heavier deposits. Anyway, lets start with spark #6.

Im currently not interested in reading the WOT ring at the very bottom as these plugs have not been used for WOT run just yet.

Spark #6 (majority condition of all other sparks)

Bank 1 summary of sparks. Notice how 1 and 5 have browning on the tip...Oil leakage in to the chamber? gummed up injectors? or something else?

Now for this picture below, spark #3, I noticed a significant "scuff" looking mark. What in the world is that?

Hello good sir! :-)

I'm running 91. No E85. I assume you're asking because the condition of the air/fuel ring look rich?
