    Mostly depends on what engine you have, most small blocks use long plugs, med to hot in temp. If it's a turbo engine then you will need a turbo plug. No idle bars.

    Which ever plug you buy, match it to your old plug for length, then go from there. If your area is cold use a hot plug, if warm, use a med plug. Also check the brand of plug and the brand of your engine, the manuf. usually will suggest a plug to use with that engine.
    If this is a new engine and you are breaking it in, get a couple of plugs. After break in, put a new plug in there.
