Spark plug questions...

I just finished hooking up my nitrous kit and im still running factory plugs... i have a 50 shot in there now... im looking to upgrade to NGK-Bkr7e plugs.. will these be a good choice for a 50 and 75 shot?? also should i be doing anything with my timing for the 75 shot?

by the spark plug part i assume you have a 3.0, bkr7es-11 are 2 step colder plugs, some say 1step colder for 50-75shot is good enough, but I always used 2step no matter how small the shot was, just to be safer, and for my experience, there is no noticible different in daily driving power by having 2step colder.

I do 90% stop and go and 2 step colder plugs sucked and lets not talk about the winter time. I removed them and went back to 1 step colder with cut ground straps, sprayed up to a 100shot with no issues

now when my driving style was about 50% stop and go 2step colder were fine

No problems with 75hp using one-step lower and it improved my MPG when not using nitrous over the two-step lower spark plugs
