    Did you have to re gap the new ones ?

    What were fitted prior to the change and how many miles had they done ?

      Dont use the ramp tye adjuster as this will damage the small cente electrode.
      If enough people on here e mail NGK asking them to make an
      0.8 gap ZFR6FIX version of this plug as opposed to only the 1.1 gap I am sure they would.
      Definite improvement on the iridum BKR6EIX that I have been using up to now]
      Sounds like you are noticing similar improvements to the new NGK IX offering ZFR6FIX.

                        why it just makes sence when running a higher state of tune that other parts wont take the abuse stage 3 car on standard plugs....most people use the ngk iridiums and change them every 5/6 thousand miles
