    Been having a pinging problem on hot days and remembered one last option, a plug that is a step colder.

    I know SC guys run this but anyone done it with NA engines to reduce ping? What is the part # for NGK plugs that are one step colder?


    Thanks guys

    Some stuff. Not a lot, just some.
    You can try stepping up to higher octane gas if the plugs don't work

    I've done that before, but the timing will eventually speed up to compensate.
