    Thanks Invierno, I will stick with the stock ones but I think I'll put in some fresh ones as I have done about 15k with the Trifecta tune in! As far as the gap goes stay the same? Running .028", I have tried upto .035" but I kept getting spark blowout until I got back down to .028"

    Cheers, Buk.

    Modern engines are designed to pretty much last 30k or 60k without a spark plug change. Obviously if you feel the gap isn't correct and/or are upgrading more power/fuel and possibly requiring new plugs in the process, I don't see a need to replace spark plugs with only 15k miles. If we all did that, it would be expensive to change the plugs that often.

    The stock plugs will be fine with E85. As for changing the plugs, it's probably not a bad idea. I change mine on the Cobalt every 15-20k miles. Most LNF guys change them every 10-15k when tuned.

    Thank you guys for the info and direction on plugs. Just out of curiosity anyone know what was the difference in boost level for the "low power" and "high power" E85 tune? Jerry?

    Not sure about road cars, but in Australia the V8 super cars are using E85 and in endurance racing they have to make twice as many fuel stops than they did on regular petrol. They do make a bit more power though.

    I dont know why us aussies have followed the americans in terms of this e85 setup. I thought by going 100kw to about 145 kw would attract people or tuners in Australia to do this.

    But one thing I would like to see from BNR in particular or anyone with this e85 tune is to post some videos of zero to hundred km with the e85 setup. There was so much hype about it but no video clips as such

    would love to run e85 but the nearest station is in DC. 50 miles away! I would like to run this instead of water/meth cause vince said there is no way to turn off the water meth once tuned for it you have to use it all the time.
    could some one explaine e85 for dummies!

    Just like global warming, "POLITICS". First they get you to use it, then they tell you they have to tax it because you use too much. And then back this up with some BS reason why they have to reduce the use of it.

    okay i am going to be that guy. what is e85? and if it needs larger injectors to run does that mean it has lower fuel economy? sorry for the dumb quesiton, but its was under fuel economy on a artcle i read.)

    just curious for the benifit of adding power/ mpg to my car, if it does add mpg thats great, but if its a power gain that i need a injector swap for then its not worth it for my daily driver.
