2.Colder plugs buy how much 1 ??

In my case with a sbc400 with 13.5/1 compression, it wanted less timing. Gas was 38* best,E85 likes 28* to 32* locked. Plugs are 1range hotter. Shift point stayed same. I am most consistent if I stage at 180* stripe is 190/195*. If I stage at say 170* the car falls off 1 or2 #.

Mine was less timing and hotter plug with a wider gap. Water box temp 170 stage at 180 and about a 10 degree temp rise during the run. Water temp IS VERY important.
