Sparkplugs/Coilpacks - 600kw

 Share

Recommended Posts

Have two quick spark related questions for everyone. I'm in the middle of building a stroked 2.8 and shooting for around 600kw. I'm expecting to run around 35psi to get there with my gen2 6466. 

1st - Will good condition splitfire coilpacks have any issues around that pressure/hp? Should I just purchase r35 coilpacks to be safe or am I wasting my money?

2nd - As for sparkplugs, I'm planning on running 8's with a .6mm gap. Will this suffice?

Thanks

They could be good, or they could struggle. I'd be worried that they're not good enough. It's not as if Splitfires are actually any better than brand new OEM coils. They're just the same technology level, well made.

This would be my approach to anything above 400kW these days. Eliminate the possibility of trouble.

8 is probably wise. I would want to be running fu(k tons more than 0.6mm gap. That's sufficient argument for R35 coils straight away.

R35 coils and the greatest spark plugs in the world, Denso IK01-24 or NGK R7434-8 and forget about it for a couple of years.

 

they can be had from RHD japan for relatively reasonable money. supercheap will hit you for $99 a plug.

Could you explain the advantage of the Denso/NGK plugs you listed? Spark power, longevity, or something else my brain can't think of?

Yes - The NGK R racing plugs have iridium or platinum ground electrodes with a much higher melting point vs the iridium ix plugs having an iridium centre and nickel ground, so if you value your engine on a big dollar build you will run nothing else. A big detonation event or lean out and there goes your ground electrode through your cylinder.

Also they are available in colder heat ranges like 8 and 9 and have a concealed centre electrode which is helpful for large boost applications.

I personally have blown tips off the ix iridium plugs destroying my engine before and refuse to use anything else in a 400kw + engine now.

DENSO IK01 24 IRIDIUM Denso racing track race dedicated special spark  plugs|plug f|plug playerplug and play solar power - AliExpress

the ground strap is pure platinum, and very short which keeps it cool to avoid pre-ignition events. electrode is iridium with a pointed tip. gap is fixed to 0.7mm.

very concentrated electric field, ground strap very good at dissipating heat and resisting ablation.

Shouldn't we be using NGK R7436 (JIS 53mm) instead of R7434 (ISO 50.5mm)?

Just to add to this, 645wkw, spitfires, 0.8mm gap and a morristech ignitor. I'd say I would get to near on 700 with this set up and a tighter gap. All on United E85

Yes that's exactly what I use on the 2.8. Having said that the plugs really jam into the R35 coilpacks hard - so much so that when you remove them the stalks usually come away from coilpack and get stuck on the plug which is totally annoying, requiring the entire one piece coil bracket to be removed to retrieve them. This is using the Godzilla motorsports bracket with R35 coils, so a PRP bracket might not have this problem if the spacing to plug is slightly higher.

The iso shorter length appears it would be a better fit I believe than the longer jic length but am yet to confirm this.

Some dielectric grease perhaps?

Could try it maybe, but it does appear that the R35 coilpack setup has always felt like the standard jic length, which is the correct ones for RBs, is the culprit. Comparing to stock or splitfires it's definitely more noticeably tight with R35 coilpacks with a BCPR type jic plug.

I'm pretty sure that's the reason @burn4005 is using the iso length instead of the jic as that 3mm shorter plug makes them fit the coil a bit nicer.

It's not that bad really, I'm just a bit pedantic and notice these types of things. The important thing is these plugs definitely are the best in the business.

    • Are you sure? Both my mates have 1.5way Nismos in their S15s   Here's a 1.5way for a R33 Skyline https://otakugarage.com.au/product/nismo-gt-1-5-way-lsd-38420-rs015-b/ https://nismodirect.com/nismo-gt-lsd-1-5-way-ecr33-nissan-skyline-gts-t-38420-rs015-b/  
    • There is no 1.5 way nismo. There is a 2 way nismo and a 1 way nismo. The "1.5" one is the 1 way nismo. This is much better on the road than a 2 way nismo. See above.
    • After ripping off the HKS turbo on my 2.8 blue 32 and going with the 6466 I was astounded by the overall improvement everywhere in the power curve and peak power. Considering that 6466 is over 450kw at 22psi on 98ron and over 600kw at 32psi on E85, I would expect the 6266 on the 2.6 to be maybe 400kw on 98ron and 500kw on E85 at similar boost levels. Sound around the ballpark ?
    • Hi octane do a kit that puts the pump under the alternator but you can’t use an ls1 style alternator with it you can put the tank in the bay it just requires cutting a hole in the inner guard for it to fit through 
    • Hi, For my next build, I would like to go to dry sump but I have a few questions : A. I would like to keep the AC, so it looks like it's possible to mount the oil pump below the alternator. B.1. I would love to find room for the oil tank in the engine bay (by removing/reallocating the fuse box) however I'm afraid of the efficiency of the oil tank as it will not be a bottle design ?   2. or in the driver side front bumper, but same as above + quite annoying when refilling oil or even checking oil level...I only saw some R35 with this location (no R32-R34) Conclusion it looks like the best area is the trunk or the rear seats which is quite annoying for a "street" car C. How can I know how many oil liters the engine needs per RPM ? I'm looking into the selection of the correct pressure of my oil pump but I don't know how to do it ? D. Goal is 600-700WHP, street and track days (no drag or launch control to save the transmissions) and since my front trans already broke (due to incorrect ratio => previous owner). I know what's involved if it brakes again D.1. Considering my application and power level, do you think I should go with a kiwi oil pan (with separate front diff case) ? or it's not likely it will brake and I'm better putting the money somewhere else. "Money is not the issue". The question is does it worth it ?   Thanks for your advices !
