    I tried some Autolite plugs in my car... gapped them to factory spec, but man, the wrx DID NOT like the autolites. I drove all the way to F.A.S.T. (Aaron really is cool) on saturday afternoon just to get the NGK's, although if I were to do it again i'd just order them from an Auto Zone for cheaper. I was freaked though... The car had never been so unhappy. I'll always go with OEM plugs now. I had an extensive conversation with Prodrive about plugs and they've never noticed ANY difference with their setups and OEM vs. colder plugs, so I wouldn't mess with it. Especially at this altitude. with slightly less O2 in their, we really aren't concerned about detonation, and putting colder plugs in is just gonna delay ignition that much more putting the timing dangerously early if things ever did spark hot.

    You get brake fluid?

    Try to find some clear plastic hose that we can use to bleed the brakes.

    Spark Plug Sticky

    it depends on your level of modification. i'd suggest sticking with platinum, stock heat range until you get to a stage 4 (upgraded turbo)

    then i'd go one step colder. in the linked thread above, there is somd good info on plugs that fit, but come with a gap that is too big. typically some adjustment of gap is required anyways, but making larger moves is less desirable than just tweaking a small move.

    dR

    [EDIT] when i swapped out my plugs at 60K, they were still fine, and easily could have gone another 30K without any problems. probably more.
