lol a little spoof on a thread title.. anyways with my new setup, my C/R should be about .5 lower then stock, so I should be around 8.5 or a little less. I am currently using 2 step colder plugs that I had from my original setup, but since my compression is slightly less, should I go to a hotter plug? Or when I get the car tuned, are they going to advance the timing enough to where 2 step colder plugs won't hurt?

I'd talk to whoever is tuning it ( ;) ) and see what they say. You might have to take a step back (1 step colder than stock), but then again, you might not.

I'd wait for confirmation via tuning. (A.K.A straight from the horse's mouth)

I'd stay with the 12's for now. You want as reasonably much timing as you can get
and when you're on the dyno you might as well reach for whatever the nomal max
is. If you don't have any detonation during the tune.....then you might go a step
warmer afterwards and see if you are still okay.

However, if you go that route, and maximize your total timing, you might want to
have the plug set for three degrees of retard, not the other way 'round, just for
the safety factor....it's your call.
