Hopefully a tour for club members will occur next year after everything's up & running. With some of the behavior I've seen at B'fest East I'd prefer no tie in.

BOSCH FGR7DQP or NGK BKR6EQUP were used originally. Most here are fans of the NGK Laser Platinum plugs. You might even be able to find them cheaply at the corner big box parts store.
