Both NGK CR9E, both in the same box etc etc etc!

I paid $4.95 for them from dennis Kirk or Chapparrel. Probably can get them for less if you dig around.
Give 'em a try, I'm pretty happy with them.

Even if you're plug is fouled, it's not wasted.
Grab some oven cleaner and spray the plug. Let is soak for 24 hrs in a small cup/aeresol cap, then rinse well with water. Voila! It's clean! Works great on headers, too!
A precaution is to use rubber gloves and eye protection, this stuff burns the skin and eyes.

Thanks Mike for the the oven cleaner idea. I tried to clean a fouled plug the other day and nothing was working. Now I know what to do with that oven cleaner I've had for 8 years. Between riding and wrenching, never have time to use the oven anyway LOL....

$1.88 each on CR8E's the EK's were $5.00 each which is almost $5 cheaper than I was paying. I think I'm gonna order a box of 10 8E's for $19.00, that should last quite a while. These folks even have the 9E's and the 10E's so I might get a couple each of those and try them out.
I did the Autozone and Advanced auto thing during the day yesterday....Their computers kept saying that the NGK's and the Splifires were unavailable. The O'Riely auto parts thing was the same. It looks like the big O stocks accourding to customer demand and there isn't any in GA.
I did try the Oven Cleaner thing last night. It appeared to work great. I rinsed them off before coming to work and they look like new. I'm going to load the EK I fouled a couple of weeks ago and try it out again....It only had a couple of hours on it when I flooded it on start-up.
LINE #150 on this spreadsheet contains all plug brands and numbers that are known to be compatible with the CR8E. I made several inquiries that have yet to come back. I cannot find anything concerning the Bosch Platinum +4 for the WR anywhere....Will keep looking

Are the EK's the ones with the two posts that come from each side of the threaded area??
