By number I'm sure it's the part number, not number of plugs. You'll get an answer soon, not my area.

NGK BP7ES (non resistor type) or BPR7ES (resistor type) if you run it fairly hard. If not then go with BP6ES or BPR6ES

The IRIDIUM should work well, stronger spark and life from what I'm told. All depends on the power of the coils sending the spark too though. For a 308 might not get too much extra benefit.

As Andrew said, Iridiums are great plugs but only if your car has a high energy ignition. Their stock gap is usually larger than older style copper core plugs, so if the rest of your ignition isn't up to snuff, you may have a rough running car.

Probably why Ferraripilot recommended more standard type NGK's for you.

I sure wouldn't try to run Iridiums on an older car with a conventional coil and distributor setup.

'99 550, Rosso Corsa / Nero, S/N:114654, Assy: 31836, Engine: 52084

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.
