Specification part number breakdown: NGK BUR7EQ
B= 14mm Thread Diameter
U= Surface or Semi Surface Discharge Type R= Resistor Type Plug
7= Heat Rating
E= 19mm Thread reach
Q= 4-Ground Electrodes (Firing End Construction)

For N/A & STOCK Turbo 13B engines that want a pure OEM plug for original reasons, zero performance or reliability gains, the rawest form of OEM plug available, one ideal configuration, installs with normal spark plug socket.
- Configuration: Use Two (2) Standard TRAILING (BUR9EQ) & Two (2) Standard LEADING (BUR7EQ) spark plugs per 13B engine... a total of 4 plugs.

For Stock or slightly Modified N/A or Turbo 13B engines. Same as the Standard plugs with slightly increased performance, a few cents more expansive, a little more spark intensity, longer electrode life, a more complete burn, Two ideal configurations, installs with normal spark plug socket.
- Configuration #1 (N/A & Stock Turbo engine w/ a few bolt-ons, stock boost level producing UP TO 220 HP) Use Two (2) Platinum TRAILING (BUR9EQP) & Two (2) Platinum LEADING (BUR7EQP) spark plugs per 13B engine... a total of 4 plugs.
- Configuration #2 (Modified Turbo engine w/ bolt-ons, slightly increased boost levels producing UP TO 260 HP) Use Four (4) Platinum TRAILING (BUR9EQP) & spark plugs per 13B engine... a total of 4 plugs.The colder Trailing plug (heat range 9) provides substantial detention resistance needed to keep the engine "safe" when boost has been increased above stock levels vs's that of the leading plug. (heat range 7) This WILL NOT make extra power however, it will help to protect the engine at higher boost settings.

For N/A & Turbo engines ranging from bone stock to hard-core race. The ultimate in plug performance, max yield, all (4) plugs will use a matching heat rang, the most potent spark, high output, long electrode life, complete burn, about the cost of platinum, superior, requires a thin wall socket to install/remove.
