|It'll run like a stuffed up nose with a stock muffler. Also, I'm sorry to say, a plug is a plug. Resistor plugs are great for AM/FM tunes and noise isolation but if you|
want the most spark you go with non-resistors.
I run Denso Iridium's on the Mallory/MSD equipped engines. NGK Copper Plus on the others..

|Love the name of the house. As to the 66 muffler: I would go with stock just for the look. Don't think you will notice much difference in power. As to the plugs: I stocked up on the Bosch plugs before they went away. Don't know what everyone is running now.|

Hello smart TCBers,
I've got a few questions.
On my '66 I need advice about what muffler to get. The Bus will look very stock but the engine is going to be a 1776 w/ dual carbs. As I understand it having a stock muffler will help to lessen the effect of having a more powerful engine. I don't want a super loud Bus and I don't want something goofy looking hanging off the back. Someone said there is one that looks stock but will work well but he doesn't remember the name of who makes/sells it. Does anyone know which one I'm speaking of? Would it be a good choice? Or is there something else any of you can recommend?
On my '71 I have non-resistored spark plugs. My local VW shop says that they are hard to come by. I guess NGK still makes them but Bosch does not. Is there good reason to stick with non-resistored over resistored spark plugs? Will
non-resistored just get harder and harder to find?
Oh and I finally have named my new home. I was watching Gone With the Wind the other day and it came to me: Tara Bulli.
