--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I saw this posted on another forum and thought that it might be helpful to post it here. This may be "sticky" material.

This is taken from Nitroustech.com and I've seen the same thing on many many forums. Figured we could have this here for everyone to use.

**Note: Heat ranges are determined by NGK standards. Not all plug manufacturers follow the same guidelines.

***Note: List is intended for reference only. Please consult with head mfg. and ignition mfg. for proper gap.

****Note: NGK IX and Denso plugs are Iridium.

Just to add a few more.
The AR Autolites are about the same from what I see at the normal ones.
AR3910 and 3910. The difference is the ground strap is cut back. Save some dough and di it yourself.
Also the 3923 is about the same heat range as a 3911, 3922 - 3910 if you guys want a resistor plug.

Does anyone know if someone makes a shorty, header-style plug for the LT1 heads?
