I checked my NGKs before I put them in; and low and behold they were gapped at .041. that is too large if you are tuned...

I encourage you to get a tool, and check them BEFORE they go in...

So I had one step colder NGKs gapped at .032 and couldn't go past 5.5k without it popping and blowing out. Lol

Gapped them down to .028 and all is good.
