my "82" 320i is approaching 300K and also is burning sufficient oil to foul plugs nice quickly. Ns took it come a brand-new mechanic yesterday and also he recommend i install a collection of non fouler plug sleeves. DORMAN component # 42004They evidently place the plug in such a method that castle won"t acquire oil fouled.I"m no so sure I think him yet I could be willing to experiment.Anybody out there have know anything about these ?

I don"t know how you might run those and also maintain ANY type of burning efficiency. Plug location and proximity come the flame front is important. These fully shroud the plug.

Oddly enough, thay in reality work. Back in the day, a friend of mine had them ~ above his Chevy truck because that over a year till it threw a rod. They also work come mask a bad converter ~ above OBDII systems. Far better start loking for either a donor motor or setup on rebuilding that one, though, as they"re just a temporary fix.
throttle lift oversteer is a method of life and should it is in celebrated. There are couple of things as much fun as steering a vehicle through a corner with the throttle.

My critical trip residence with the 327 - had 4 pistons with holes and also 5 set of ring in the oil pan

Be aware that; on it"s critical trip residence you may burn holes with the pistons.That oil burns an extremely hot!The anti-foulers are just a bandaid - do not warm rod it!
I agree through both over posts to a details extent. They certainly aren"t great from a power standpoint. Having the plug completely shrouded would certainly kill combustion efficiency and make because that a sub-optimum engine.However, together toyotech said, they execute *work*, and I understand of a couple of people that have actually run castle with good results. In ~ the finish of the day, if it method the difference in between you gaining to job-related or finishing up stranded, execute what you have to do to get the project done. Just be ~ above the lookout for a brand-new engine for when the inescapable time comes.On a fun side note: Drilling out among the larger plug anti-foulers to expropriate a bosch wideband 02 sensor (the threads room the same yet the pointer is a little bit too large) and enlarging the feet at the bottom provides for a very nice, price effective heatsink because that an LC/LM-1 wideband, allowing you to operation them a little closer to the collector/turbine real estate without burn them to ash.
