team rush upgrade...here goes nothing

ok i went to napa and got all the parts i think i need to do the team rush upgrade i got a cap, rotor,cap adaptor,ignition coil, some wires,and a coil connector...i was wondering about spark plugs i didnt get any yet because i was wondering what you guys thought. The website i am getting all the info on is http://www.jeepz.com/forum/engine/16...n-upgrade.html they dont say anything about plugs on there, anything else anyone would recommend i get or some tips on doing this upgrade would be appreciated.

I use Autolites. I mean, you are using a mostly Ford ignition, why not go all the way and use Ford spark plugs?

I have never seen any mention of using a different type plug than the stock number in any of those write-ups. Just open them up to 0.045 from 0.035. I use either the standard copper plus or the truck plug (both Champion).

Well, you might ask me, since I'm 'TeamRush' that 'Jeepz.com' gives credit to for the upgrade!

And you should use a PREMIUM spark plug for your year/type of engine.

If you have an '81 CJ with a (guessing) 258, then get an Autolite Premium plug for an '81 CJ with a 258.

Gap should be between 0.040" and 0.045" after you do the large cap and tall rotor upgrade.

If you have a V-8, you should upgrade the ignition coil to an E-core coil.
If you have a I-6, then the coil is an option, and not completely a necessity.

NOW!
Bear in mind that your 28 year old ignition module might not live up to the new parts and new demands...

Consider using a 'Stealth HEI' if it quits on you...
That's simply taking the 'Guts' out of your existing module, and substituting a GM HEI module for the Ford 'Guts'.
Costs about $25 and takes about 2 hours to do.
http://www.junkyardgenius.com/ignition/jeep/HEI01.html

In fact, I'm addressing some module questions over there right now as we are communicating... As 'TeamRush'...

Well, that engine didn't always look like that!



I'm still working on wrapping that Jeep around that too.
