Any of the plugs mentioned will do just fine. I usually like to run a medium for normal conditions, and a hot plug when its cold outside.

You could also try RB or novarossi plugs. they are very good plugs but can be kinda pricey.

Just make sure not to use OS plugs in non OS engines.

I think I am just going to go to m lhs and see what they have for standard length plugs, When it starts to get warmer will I want to get a medium plug or should I just get a medium now? What are the pros and cpns of the hotter plug vs the cooler one?

59's are hot plugs, 8's are mediums. Got beat to that part lol!

As for OS engines, we have a difference of opinion there. There glow plugs are very good too, just not for non OS engines. I love there P3 trubo plugs in the v-spec based engines.

They come with a standard "6" Novarossi/R&B plug from the factory and I've never used anything else in my R&B engines. I've had two of these WS7-2 and they ran nothing but perfectly reliable, easy to tune and with loads of power.
I'd suggest to stay with those plugs, but that's just my 2 ct...
