Best Plugs

Which are the best plugs to use for the sami 1300cc motor? what about plug wires and after market ignition system. I like the MSD...what about the rest of the group?

Re: Best Plugs

I have almost always used the stock NGK number. I did try the the split type NGK replacement for stock and saw no difference. As for MSD I think the general consensous is they aren't worth the expense on a stocker. Direct hits was a thing going around for a while and people seemed to like them. Hopefully Crow will chime in on those for ya. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Jim

Re: Best Plugs

i run Borsh platuims on my sammi with the msd ign. i also have the high comp. pistons, weber carb, header, and a k&n air charger with steel tube. all the msd ign. does is give you a hotter more accountible spark jump, not the nasty spiting that the factory does. there are no performance gains with the msd, just more accountible spark. but the platuims are the way to go.

Re: Best Plugs

I use NGK with Direct hits. I like the direct hits they do make a diffrence not huge horsepower but in cold starting and smoother thottle responce. My main reason to getting the direct hits was winter starts I need all the sparck I can get a -30 F or lower up here in North dakota.

I liked them so much I but them on the wifes Jeep help with the gas miles some.

Re: Best Plugs

i have run bosch +4's platinum in a number of cars and i like em.They always seem to give a little power boost. They are also supposed last a long time and get more efficient spark because it shoots the flame kernel downward instead of sideways.

Re: Best Plugs

I'm running the Direct Hits on both my road rigs. For the money and ease of installation, I think they are a great value. I found them to give me a smoother idle, improved throttle response, no tach compatibility problems, and are easily transfered from vehicle to vehicle if you choose to do so. You might find you'll get up to 10% better mileage depending on your driving habits. Not too shabby for a 15 minute installation.

Re: Best Plugs

I forgot to mention that the Direct Hits require the use of non resistor type plugs. Using them doesn't produce any RFI noise. If I remember correctly, I'm using NGK #4563's which is one step colder than the stock plug, the smaller plug type, and a 3 pronged electrode plug. They work very nicely.... Hope this helps

Re: Best Plugs

I use Champion Truck plugs. It is a brand that Champion came out with a couple years ago. I think they just a longer reach plug. They have made a big difference in both my Chevy Suburban and Samurai.

Re: Best Plugs

I am running the Bosch +4 plugs in my 2000 Tracker and 88 Samurai. As soon as I can remember to buy them I will install them on the tow rig as well.

Re: Best Plugs

When I replaced the plugs in my Sam after buying it, I used the Splitfires and the Splitfire wires as well. I feel there was a considerable improvement and have not gone back since. I am told the Bosch pltinum 4 point are even better, I'm going to break with what I KNOW and try them in a few weeks.
