Well first off there is no tr8 and second I drive my car everyday and the tune could not be any better than it was and it would foul br7ef plugs after driving on them for a few weeks. I'm not saying to spray on tr6 plugs but I use them in my cars to drive on the street. I always use fresh br7ef or br8ef plugs when I spray.

Others in my area also have the same problem driving around with them on the street.

I don't think they are bad to leave them in a car if it's just a toy but mine is driven daily and gets 30k miles a year on it and they do not work for daily driving period.

Tr8 may not be a part number but everybody knows what t means... I guess you would call it slang?

So with my 9.3 compression engine I should do TR55's for the street and BR8EF's for the track with a 300 shot? My bottle won't even be in the car when its on the street.

Just talked to my tuner and he put TR55's in it for the initial start up and break in.

What would be the benefit of doing the TR6 over the TR55 on my engine? My biggest worry is being able to read the plugs correctly when I start using the nitrous. I've never done a nitrous car before. I already bought a quad so I can tow the car back to the pits after a run. I need to find a new car trailer that has easier loading than the one I have now. It's a pain in the rear. It works great for my baja bug, but the GTO is to low to use the ramps I have. So I either need to have ramps built that will work or a new trailer.

Ummm nothing much really, just don't have to worry if you have too hot of a plug, the 55's should be fine for sure though. I like the safe side on most things.

Plug reading is a large learning curve, we have the basics down but there are still plenty out there that are 100x better, but that all comes with time and experience.
