But those aren't Iridiums or colder.

These are all the same heat range:

V-Power ZFR6F-11G # 6987 0.044
G-Power Platinum ZFR6FGP 7100 0.044
Laser Platinum PZFR6F-11 * 3271 0.044
Iridium IX ZFR6FIX-11 6441 0.044

If your running nitrous or boost then you don't want iridium or platinum. The tips hold too much heat.

It doesn’t necessarily do it in chronological order, though.

I can tell you , you can go to www.sparkplugs.com and punch in you vehicle and it will give different plugs available, and tell you I think how to go colder or hotter. but as far a preference I have no idea on vehicles bro.

Negative. 8 time stronger, 6 times harder, higher melting point and electrical resistence very low. They are exactly what I want to run with Force induction and nos. Been using them on anther truck for awhile now.

What I want, and what the post has been about all along, is the lower temp version. Which I have been researching 6944s from NGK. Sevaral fold colder than stock.

I have not heard on any forum, any negative posts/comments on Iridium plugs. Yes, they haven't been out for that long, but everyone has had good comments about them. Art of Henson Motors has sold thousands of them, with not a single complaint.

Where do you think I got the other 4 plug versions from ? And that site only gives the same temp region. Jon MacQuarrie of NGK has not had the request before from our trucks. That is why I am asking on this forum and others.

I'm currious about that too. Just how much of an improvement will these plugs give you over the stock ones? Maybe with a modded motor, but a stock one? Not sure of the gains for the price... But hey, if they do make a differnce, then I just might put some in the next plug change...

I got a small improvement with my hemi on gas mileage and 4HP/ 3Tq on my hyperpac for what it is worth. Just looking for colder plugs, longer lasting and stronger plugs.
I doubt there would be any huge gains. But heck, around 60 bucks for plugs, no big deal. BTW, ordering them thru Art and Henson motors. He's been helping me search. So I am throwing some on the wife's minivan....fastest minivan in town! Actually, she liked the K&N filter.
