    By the way, Welcome to the boards. I know you're in kind of a bind right now....but try asking next time. Perhaps even a polite intro and a thank you would work.

    Would you walk up to a stranger and say, "Hey! I need this from you". Just because we're on a board doesn't mean manners don't count anymore.

    I'm not bashing or trying to be negative...just politely making an observation.Maybe I'll see you in San Diego one of these days & we can trade a friendly handshake & 'hello'.

    Thanks.

    LOl, My bad man. I did mention it on the thread i made.

    Let me know if you know anyone who's taking out the stock injectors. Thanks

    Oh BTW I don't drive a wrx. I have a Tiburon. Thats why I need 6 injectors. The 440 wrx fits our cars. I am at fusion every tuesday so I'll stop by and say wasup. I'll try not to be a stranger, in which I am usually not. PEACE!

    Since i'm waay beyond +100hp over stock, I might even need 2 steps colder? One step colder for the 06 WRx in copper doesn't exist in NGK. any other brands you can think of? I've been looking for almost a week now online for a decent priced set of coppers.

    I basically need 14mm thread, 26.5mm Reach, Gasket seat, 5/8" HEX, and .028-.031 gap.
    if oyu give me an brand or part # then i can better assist you and also i can get the best price on the plugs, if I tell my supplier the thread/reach and suchness then they won't know what to give me..lol

    i'm thinking you should look into the autolite brand, most of the plugs i get cross over to an autolite #....

    Not much in terms of exact specs in Autolite flavor. but I found what I needed from online retailer. $8/plug is hardly worth troubling you, your shop, your vendor... But thanks!

    I posted this in BigSky's Sparkplug DIY:

    Here are my findings on 06 WRX sparkplugs. I can't seem to find any pre-gapped plugs in a copper flavor.

    FOR 2006 WRX
    Thread: 14mm
    Hex: 5/8"
    Reach: 26.5mm (1.04")
    Seat: Gasket
    Gap: 0.028 - 0.031


    ====
    NGK
    ====

    ILFR6B - Stock (Iridium)
    LFR7AIX - One step colder (IX Iridium Series. 0.032)
    LFR6A-11 - Stock Heat Range (Copper V-Power Series, 0.044)


    =====
    Denso (approx $12/ea)
    =====

    IKH20 = Stock heat Range (Iridium, but pre-gapped 0.044)
    IKH22 = 1 step Colder (Iridium, 0.032)
    IKH24 = 2 steps colder (Iridium, 0.032)
    IKH27 = 3 steps colder (Iridium, 0.032)

    You can never go wrong with a Nikon or Canon. Some people feel one interface is better than the other (I prefer Canon). But if you're a 'consumre reports' kinda guy, this place usually has the last word on reviews: http://www.dpreview.com/

    A good tip is:

    Longer shutter speed = more light

    Super fast action shots must be super fast shutter speed so dark environment + action shot is very rare. almost all action shots are in well lit environments.

    On the other hand, dark environments require enough light for proper composition. Hence flash, or really long shutter speed (over 1sec). Then the blur comes into effect....

    It's almost like firing a gun. focus, exhale, pull.

    You can be the safest, best decision making biker in the world....it's the outside forces (other drivers) that usually get you in trouble. So many drivers are just unaware these days.

    I am sorry to hear this. I hope everything is alright in your side.

    I got into 2 wicked crashes today at Ocotillo wells with my Quad. Couple scratches but the quad took a beating. My life flash before me but I was glad to walk out of it. Made me think I need to tell my love ones I love them more often.
