Add a head shim or go to a cooler plug.

I say check the head shim first. Did you use the shim from the TM button? You're running a TZ turbo button on a OS .18TM so you definately need to use the shim. You may want to add a .01 shim.

The OS .18TM/TZ's should temp at 240 or so. Pushing it more than that is not good.

Default Don't have to worry about head shims in Denver

I used to run the hottest plug I could find and no shims when I was racing in Denver. The air is so thin it would be very hard to get one to detonate. Hard but still possible. If its getting hot enough to detonate I'd be looking for an air leak thats leaning it way down.
