Cheese, I was throwing a misfire code steadily for #4 and randomly for the other three cyl. #4 spark plug was always clean and all the other three had some carbon on them. Pulled the head and #4 looked steam cleaned.

I have always had good luck with NGK. Denso is factory for our car, they cost almost twice as much as NGK's. Hell I run NGK's in my bike and its redline is 12,500.

they come gapped to .041, I have been trying different gaps. Just be careful of the electrode, and use a real feeler gauge not the spark plug ring thing.

WOW! .022?!

i heard that you should try and run the biggest gap if possible. but drop it if you need to

my ngks all came with .036, my older plugs were much smaller i just adjusted the fuel, and spark a little.

supa have you tuned your car yet? you still have the gt28? what is to expect of the tsi?

Tony, I know your supposed to run as big as possible, but on a boosted car you start small and widen it till its running good. Still not tuned. The car has been down for a little bit, started out as a head gasket job but now is a timing chain job. A 4mm headgasket is too big for the stock cam chain, who would have thunk it? Hopefully this weekend I'll have it all back together, no CEL light, a good street tune , and then finally take it to my tuner at the end of the month. I'm going to be running 12 psi so I have no idea what kind of whp to expect, most likely over 300. It will be the first tuned K20Z3 TSI kit w/ a F/IC that I know of.

Big gap will have a longer weaker spark, close gap will have a shorter more intense spark. Its one of those things you have to play with to see what your setup likes.

that sounds like fun....the z3 tsi fic thing....sucks i know abut the timing chain oh to well. i had that little guy off like 5 times back when i was doing cams and stuff. be careful with that 12psi stuff. i would put thicker oil in, but hey you could get the k24 timing chain, it is a little bigger. running a bigger head gasket changes you compression some so that should be interesting. thought you would want the thinnest gasket.

for boost you want the thickest to lower compression, stock is .4mm which is paper thin. 4mm is huge compared to it. I'm going to try a K24 chain, but they are 6 links longer which is a lot. hopefully not too much.
