No, but I hope within a week or two. The NGKs are in stock and also work great. I run them.

Planning to add meth here to my collection of mods over winter. You see no difference between the two plugs?

On meth or E85 I'd run the NGKs gapped to .022".

Running 55/45 93/e85 all summer long. Seems to be the sweet spot for my non flash car. Started to missfire up top in 4th. Thinking its plugs. Original 30k plugs in still. Will order up NGK then.

Terry, I just ordered a set of the 5992 plugs from you (I am still running the stockers). I was thinking that with all of the coil failures on these cars, you should carry those as well! Maybe there's not enough marin there, though. I'm doing all 6 plugs and 6 coils. I've honestly been thinking about doing all 6 injectors just as P.M. as well.

Coils would be a good idea. Maybe o2 sensors too. But Bosch is really flaky with smaller dealers like us. Next time I talk to them I'll inquire about it.

I was still running the stock plugs at 23 psi, so suffice to say they work well. The 5992's probably aren't necessary on lower boost, but they would be good if you want to be able to run a specific plug gap. Just keep in mind they are one step colder, so they may be a bit more likely to foul if you don't run them hard. Not sure if they will be any less likely to cause detonation with stock turbos, though.
