I never ran those Bosch plugs because I red about exactly what you described, them falling apart in the cyl.


Think I had a good haul today .

Super sticky tires which is awesome but I’m worried that they are slightly wider than the tires I had on there .

Things are going to be real close . Hoping I don’t have a rubbing issue . I don’t know how to roll fenders and I’m not wanting to risk cracking paint on this car .

I like how aggressive that stance is, if you can make it work.

Hank suggested the tri-tip Bosch plugs on my engine. Otherwise I'd start fine-tuning with the Bosch F5DPOR, since the raw data set with those plugs is the largest.

F5DPOR - trash
FR5DP - good


PRJ:
"You can use plain simple copper spark plugs at 1.50 a piece, as long as they are the correct heat range and gap.
Just change them every time you change your oil.
None of this platinum iridium <insert **** here> makes the plug any better at doing what it does.
It only makes it *last* longer. Meaning you can go like 80 000km on one set of plugs.

Make sure you have 5 bosch or 7 ngk heat range (1 range colder if you are doing 300hp per liter or E85)
make sure the gap is 0.6mm after you pass 250hp/liter. Below that doesn't even matter."

That's awesome info, thanks Chris! I did the same on my a4, used copper plugs (NGK) and changed them out every oil change.

It hasn’t rubbed so far . The suspension setting right now is 2” from bottom in the rear but almost bottomed out in the front . So if I drive it hard and it does rub i can raise it up.

I’m probably also about only a few weeks away from swapping to winter tires temperature wise . It’s about to start dipping below 40 F here

Nice haul :), those wheels give a nice aggressive stance.

The aggressive tread will probably go on for good in a few weeks ha

Yeah it’s looking good . No rubbing issues yet . It does go lower than what I have it but this is ok I guess .

Nice, might need some adjustment for when you get on full boost.

I added a bunch of weight in the back till I bottomed to the bump stops when I tested my new wheels to make sure but I'm on stock suspension.

I was hoping I might run into y'all there.
But I'm going to tell you how much of a poser I am... I trailered the car down !

Everything is so fresh and not really proven yet, and I don't have as big of balls as Alexdgr8 and Sam stone to just throw the car together and roll out. But I had the wife and baby with me too so It made sense. Was about 23 hrs to and from . Third time I've done this trip in the last 2 years and the scenery was the best this time due to the fall colors.

The car did good. I think I put at least 100 miles on it in the desert including the climb up to the summit of Mt Charleston. Only casualty I've seen was the tensioner bolt for my PS pump Came loose - but due to me running such a short belt It didn't make any difference.

Now that I'm home I need to work on some more stuff. The following and probably a lot more:
Swap tires
Remove starter and increase the size of the reference pin / troubleshoot trigger issue
Find out why the windshield wipers don't work
and I need to check out the carbon canister deal and fuel tank, it smells like fuel fumes constantly but no leaks
*potential 01E swap??
