White Roof Radio #186

Woofcast #186. For reals this time, not like yesterday. That’s what not having consistent internet does to a guy. But right to it, we start with a little F1 talk (more info at autosport.com) and Gabe’s MINI rides too low. We think it’s because he is driving around Chicago like it’s the Streets of San Fransisco the Dukes.

We talk a bit about Karting before Todd lays down this weeks tip. R53 JCW owners, make sure you are getting your plugs changed (even if they killed the dinosaurs)! Take this service bulletin if your service department doesn’t believe you.

Finally, Gabe’s review of his JCW Engine Kit. Of course you already read the review, right?

Zips are up as well, if you need them. Follow the link below for 186, go back to the show notes for 185 to get that one. Sorry for the delay. Oh yea, you must check out the dramatic prairie dog. It’s awesome!

  • I have just learned that the JCW plugs are not, in fact, Iridium but a platinum multi-ground performance plug. I guess you could ask for or bring your own Iridium plugs in for installation at oil changes but as Gabe said there are differences of opinion on the subject of colder stage plugs in JCW and cars with reduction pullies.

    The OEM recommended plug for JCW cars is the NGK BKR7EQUP.

    So, you killed the dinosaurs for nothing then…?

  • Well, I did my part with the Iridium plugs in my ’03 MCS. ; )

    Gabe, I didn’t realize you had removed the Cooper S badge when I commented about the clutter the JCW badge makes on the boot. Thinking about it. I like what you did.
