If you are not stroking it don't get too crazy. Head work and bigger valves will wake it up but you're not going to break any records.

No, there isn't any issue with the plug going straight down as the electrode tip is still positioned opposite the original plug. Makes the rear plug a little difficult to change (I had to make a special tool to access it with everything installed). With the dual plugs, you can back off the timing since you're getting a more complete burn of the mixture. I figure I'm running around 35 degrees of advance at this point.

I was planning on stroking it later down the road when I have to do the bottom end.Should I just run cast pistons until then? Eric isn't the point of dual pluggin the head so you can run MORE timing? retarded timing equals less horsepower from my experience.
