I apologize !! To me, checking plugs & watching fuel pressure is second nature and not "extra work"...... but you are correct. the fuel system MUST be upgraded (which Procharger does) and regulated for the boost given (automatic boost compensated pressure regulation-included also). Always check the plugs at least every 10 hours (as recommended by Nickerson Performance). Not every plug needs to be checked every time, do it on a rotational basis, two plugs at a time (1-8, 3-6, 5-4, 7-2 for example) & then replace those with new ones. This way over 40 hours you have replaced a set of plugs & checked engine burn/wear 4 times over 40 hours. Start each season with a new set & check all at the end of the season. This method has worked very well for me as a "recreational" fast boater & helps keep the cost & time commitment to a minimum while still keeping an eye on the engine.
