Default spark plugs

Whats the best spark plug to put into these things? I did a search and could't find anything. The only engine mods I have right now is a biggun rev box and a HMF duel into one pipe and I plan on doing the airbox mod soon.

Platnums are good. Stay with NGK brand. I use the Iridium IX CR7EIX. Iridium is the hardest material out there and not as easy to foul. I use Iridiums in all my atvs and motorcycles.
Back in the day I used gold tip, but havent seen any now days.

This site recomends the Iridium

There is no performance difference between iridium and regular NGK's...just price. The iridiums may last longer but they wouldn't stay in my machine long enough anyways.

CR7E for all applications or CR8E for nitrous.

Is there a power difference between the 8 and 7? I know the 8 is a cooler plug.

I have always had good luck with the NGKs in all my bikes and ATVs.
