            is there any real difference as i'm sure john at courts would have changed em when i had my stage 3 :? if it was necessary ?

                  less chance of the tip melting and falling off at high boost smashing my valves lol.

                    surely if courtenay thought this might happen, they would have told worsy when they did his stage 3?? even if there was a 1% chance. I'm getting stage 3 soon, so it would be nice to know!!

                      theres always the chance of this happening on any turbo car mate. you could put it down to **** fuel or what ever else.

                      its probably not on the top of the list of mods but im getting some anyway ruling out any chances of this happening.

                      and i tell you now, you can phone and ask any tuners about the best plugs for a tuned turbo car and they will all say iridium ones

                        when the car is remaped the plug gap as to be close down to .8 the iridium plugs are pre set to .8 and do perform better under hard load .

                          there you go^^^^^

                          you have to close the gap as you turn the boost up as the higher flow of "compressed" air from the turbo tries to blow the spark out :wink:

                            Means nothing to me!! I undersrtand what your saying, and you obviously know what your talking about through experience, i am just confused as to why tuners are not putting these in as part of the upgrade package, or at least advising you that your car would benefit from them and may possibly stop your valves from being blown apart
