I came here just for the Carson Wentz avatar.

Gotta be ironic. 😋

Just like Megamaid, Wentz went from suck to blow.

Well the 72 hour fail is over. Billy cancelled the EQT and ordered an IS38. I ban myself from posting on gmk7 for 30 days.

Honestly, if you don't have plans to upgrade fueling and run an E blend, that's probably the best bet. Yes, you can run a Vortex on stock fueling with pump gas. Buts it's like driving a Ferrari 45mph. Watching a 480p video on a 4k TV. Dipping your Waygu beef in ketchup. Playing Among Us on a 3080. It's just wasted potential. But for a daily driver, an IS38 will be fine.

Patrick Mahomes puts ketchup on his Waygu beef. 😂

Spark plugs for the vortex... NGK R7438-9, or Denso IKH01-27? EQT is saying either one. What are most people running?

They are painfully expensive, but the NGK are the way to go. 7437 might be better for a daily driver. Too many recent issues with sensor and cracking ceramic etc.

I can’t seem to find information online regarding the relative performance difference between the R7437-9 (4654) and R7438-9 (4656).
