      Colder plugs with a tune

      Going to start this topic again
      IKH22 is the correct plug for our P1 T5. What are the other appropriate options besides OEM?

      I have a Shark Stage 3 tune, same as MNIWT and I also used the NGK LFR7AIX which is supposed to be one step colder. After reading through the sticky on this someone indicated that plug is the same as the IKH22.

      Reason being under boost I feel like it's misfiring, even with this LFRAIX plugs, same feeling as my Saab 9-3 (don't worry that was a short ownership) did when it didn't have cold enough plugs with its tune.

      What is the correct cold plug for the T5?

      No coolant is fine this is directly related to the tune
