A Quick Guide to Spark Plug Selection

A Quick Guide to Spark Plug Selection

We’ve all done it at some point in our lives: made the assumption that the hottest burning, most expensive spark plug is the best choice for our engine. This misconception is especially common for those who are brand new to the world of automotive performance. In truth, spark plug selection really depends on the characteristics and specifications of your engine. Not running the correct plug type or temperature will result in poor performance, short lifespan of the plugs, and even engine failure. Temperature If a little is good, then more is better… right? Well, like most aspects of performance, this isn’t always the case. When it comes to spark plugs, it’s easy to think that a hotter spark is always better, since the primary goal of a plug is to ignite the fuel at just the right moment, creating the combustion needed to generate the most power.

This 1962 Ferrari Is the Greatest Police Car of All Time. Change Our Minds. Article By Kelly Lin

Now's your chance to own the ultimate cop car. This extremely rare Ferrari 250 GTE police car is up for sale, and we envy whoever is lucky enough to own it. It has the looks, an interior that's much too luxurious, and most important, it has a storied history taming criminals.

Criminals often outran the traditional Alfa Romeo 1900 and 2600 police cars, known as Pantera for their engine roar and black paint. Armando Spatafora, one of Italy's most revered police officers, made the bold suggestion that a Ferrari should join the force.
