Kaz,

Here's another option, NGK Racing Plug # R2525-9



Go to this site http://www.ngk.com/default.asp and select the Advanced Tuners ....... Icon in the lower right.

Once you get there use these numbers to find all the plugs they make:

Thread Size = 12mm
Seat = Gasket
Reach = 19mm
Hex = 5/8"
Terminal Type = All
Resistor = Yes
Gap = All
Heat Range = 8 (stock) 9 (one step colder) 10 (colder still).....

When your on the street you have air moving around the filters,On the dyno there's not an adiquit(spelling) amount of air moving around the filters.What kind of a loss are we talking about:confused: That was with no n2o was it?So are you ditching the set/up?Try the extreme version of the filters.;)

You gonna hit the track Saturday?

Octane evapurates in the tank though - if it was sitting awhile that could be a problem - Kaz - you are getting too secretive here. You can't be putting those teasers out without sharing the rest of the story... I hope that your engine survived the detonations - that does not sound good. You are pushing the limits more than anyone that I know of.... your willingness to share your experiences (success and failure) is really valuable to the community...so I hope that you will open up.... I am still waiting for you to outline your current program just to here were you are heading with it. - I am also interested in discussing your gearing setup.... it seems really low for the speed and HP that you are pushing - and I am finally toying with taking your advise on bigger gearing. Weren't you prepping for some runs at the track soon?

Kevin,
Yes I'm going this Saturday if everything works out.It's getting the slick Mounted and they should be delivering me my Bike Today.Kim it was VP C-23 fuel left in a 5 gallon Plastic Race Jug from Last season.Maybe 3 months old,but defiantly Stale!:( Vinny I will bring the filters with me to the track and do a Baseline with them.I'm Running a Very Dangerous Tune Up"on the Ragged Edge" so I might need them to keep it from going a little Lean.I have Not had this Good Air conditions and it really changes my tune up.I need to find at least 1 step hopefully 2 steps Colder Plugs!Oh I pray she stays together.I will Not Make any predictions or say anything other then this is the Limit of what my Crazy A$$ will try on this Motor!My Tuner said when ever Your Doubling Horse Power with Nitrous you are on the edge!:eek: Wish me Luck this Saturday!:cool:

Good luck Saturday. Yep... once the seal on the can is broken, the clock starts ticking on that stuff. Even on a weekend-to-weekend basis (or so my fuel-dealing friends tell me).

KAz - good luck and stay safe - this outer limit thing scares me a bit for you. HAve you thought about a progressive controller for that setup - gradual build of power may be more manageable - or even a two stage. Good luck and whatever your time be sure to stay safe and keep the engine and yourself in one piece....

Do you put the has can on wood or just on the concrete?Put it on wood.It stays stable longer,not much but it does.

Kaz,
best of luck, and stay in one piece for us. As for being secretive, to be honest, I dont think I will ever have the budget to copy your setup, so no threat from me ;) but, racers always hold something back, and I can respect that. I am really curious to know what this motor is capable of though. Keep us posted, and go get em.
Greg
