We run MC59 plugs in the 427. I like to run it a little rich as I'm new to nitro tuning and the hotter plug seems to make better power with the richer mixture. Other plugs I tried and didn't like as well:
MC8, RB5, RB6

I like the OS R5 and the RB6.... P4 if I have to.

edit: I realize this has little bearing on how those plugs might run for you, but I figured I would throw it out there for comparison's sake.

double edit: I run the Byron Gen2 30/11 Race blend.
