Do you need to replace the spark plugs on your Volkswagen air-cooled engine? If so, you might want to consider this kit of 4 NGK D8EA spark plugs, compatible with Volkswagen air-cooled engines with 12mm spark plug threads. This kit contains enough spark plugs for two cylinder heads, which is the standard configuration for most Volkswagen air-cooled models.
A spark plug is a device that creates a spark to ignite the air-fuel mixture in the combustion chamber of your engine. The quality and condition of your spark plug can affect the performance and efficiency of your engine, as well as its emissions and lifespan. Therefore, it is important to choose a spark plug that suits your engine’s needs and specifications.
The NGK D8EA spark plug is a high-performance spark plug that delivers reliable ignition and durability. It features a copper core electrode that provides better conductivity and heat dissipation. It also has a trivalent metal plating that resists corrosion and seizing. The spark plug has a 12mm thread diameter and a 3/4" reach, making it compatible with many engines. The spark plug has a conventional tip, which is less expensive and provides more piston clearance than a projected tip. However, a conventional tip may also shroud the spark and reduce the flame kernel, resulting in less power and efficiency.
The NGK D8EA spark plug is a good choice for hot-running engines, as it is two heat ranges colder than the stock spark plug. This means it can dissipate more heat and prevent pre-ignition and detonation, which are harmful conditions that can damage your engine. However, it may not be suitable for cold climates or low-compression engines, as it may cause fouling or poor starting.
The NGK D8EA spark plug is compatible with various Volkswagen models such as the 411, 412, and late Bus that use the Type 4 engine . This engine was used in models from 1968 to 1979 and has 12mm spark plug threads. The Type 4 engine is known for its increased displacement, power, and torque compared to the previous Type 1 engine. However, it also runs hotter and requires more cooling and lubrication. Therefore, using a suitable spark plug like the NGK D8EA can help improve the performance and reliability of your Type 4 engine.
