    Does anybody know about spark plugs. My Mondial is fitted with N6GY Champion Sparkers, the book of words says these are now discontinued. I understand the replacement is N6YCC. I came by a set of N6YC Racing Specification plugs, does anybody know the difference between "ordinary" and racing Spec. plugs. For what it's worth, they don't look any different to any other type.
    I am having difficulty finding the N6YCC plugs, so is there an alternative ? NGK, Bosch. etc.

    NGK BP7 EVX will do just fine.

    There was an article in Forza about spark plugs, it was a while ago (maybe a year or so?). I think if you do a search, there was some info posted about it (maybe in the old ferrarichat archives?).

    Their recommendation was NGK. Didn't have too many good things to say about Champions.

    I've posted this before somwhere, but due to an "incident" at the glider club I was a member of, the Tug plane no longer uses champions.....

    I'm sure there are many happy users though, and good luck to 'em.

    Give these folks a shout ...

    http://www.sparkplugs.co.uk/pages/pricing/applications/ngk_petrol_car_applications.asp

    The above link will allow you to place your requirements for the data base to search for the proper plug ...

    Addendum: Champion N6GY go to the following link for Champion replacement number.

    http://www.championsparkplugs.com/results_cross.asp?pid=n6gy&x=36&y=11&seenCrossWarning=1

    Addendum: The following site will allow you to search several manufacturers for plug applications for your vehicle.

    http://www.clubplug.net/

    Addendum: Just a note regarding your question about "racing plugs" there are several variants of Champion racing spec plugs. For instance, I use N60Y Champion plugs in the Dino (Fiat) 2000 (206) and the plugs are no longer available, however, the replacement gives a description of one variant of the racing series.

    Addendum: the following link allows you to read the number on your Champion plugs ... well, you asked!

    Just a bit more info, the problem, a serious misfire started ofter being stuck in a traffic jam at LeMans for 1.5 hrs + in 34 degrees, car did not over heat and behaved very well, it was only when I came to leave that it started to misfire big time. I checked the plugs and the gaps were massive, I reset and things improved loads, but there is still a hint of a misfire.
    I checked the gaps before going on the journey and they were fine and they had covered about 5k miles.

    Anyway new plugs going in, ngk's as my local dealer has them.
    Thanks for the help and info.
