Brisk Silver Racing DR14YS Spark Plug

Anyone have any feedback on the Brisk Silver Racing DR14YS Spark Plugs? I would like to know how they peformed and how long they lasted and what gap was used and the mods on the car they were installed in. TIA

I search some more after my post here and found this on a Brisk site. (see below)


"Straight from Carma Performance, one of our authorized dealers, here is a back to back dyno. Carma just swapped a set of DR14YS's into a turbocharged Mazda Miata while it was on the dyno. It had NGK BKR7ES's in it before. This is a before and after with no changes other than spark plugs. The Brisk DR14YS produced right at 6hp over the NGK BKR7ES!"

I know you can have a 6HP difference between runs on a dyno with everything the same and many of us know the NGK works but I was hoping someone had tried the Brisk silver racing DR14YS spark plugs and could post some feedback.

I have been using Brisks, but not that model. Rather, the LGS 14DOR-T which has a silver electrode too, but also 4 grounding points. I have had mixed experiences with them. They feel great in the upper RPM band, especially when I use my stock tune, but at idle or close to idle they misfire quite a bit, especially when the engine is warming up. I haven't had that issue with NGK's that I have used before. I'm sticking with them for now as I do enjoy them. I hope this helps.

Personally I wouldn't use silver tipped plugs. Short term they work okay, but quite a few guys over in the UK have had issues after putting 3k miles or so on them. The electrodes wear quickly giving running issues like poor idle, misfires etc.

Possibly even the same plug under a different manufacturer. Over here we have Nology silver plugs with a D4YS code, which is very close to the brisk code.

Thanks for the feed back on the Brisk plugs. I was worried about how the silver would hold up over time and from the response so far it looks like it may be an issue.

Hurdy, 465whp ~ 385 lbft at the wheels ~ 11.46 @ 120.15 looks like a fun ride.

How about the multi-spark plugs from Brisk? Could they give better spark (they claim two sparks per firing) and wear slower than regular ones?

I've had extensive conversations with Bret from Brisk. I plan to test my BKR8EIX Iridium plugs vs. the Brisk DR12YS projected spark plugs which are designed to be equivalent to an 8-series NGK plug or even vs. the DR12S non-projected spark plugs which are designed to be an 8.5 series heat range.

I have a feeling my BKR8EIX Iridium plugs are not able to shed the heat fast enough during big turbo spool up (CF/timing correction shows as high as -4 degrees with port fuel but WM off). We have corrected this by ramping up post intercooler WM (50/50 mox) to cool cylinder temps.

Without WM, the Brisk Silver plugs are supposed to shed heat much faster so I'll be testing either the projected or non-projected spark plugs while slightly reducing post intercooler WM to see when CF/timing correction starts again. The goal is to systematically test if Silver plugs can reduce the need for WM while still showing 0 or reduced CF/timing correction compared to the BKR8EIX Iridium plugs.

What about the PFR8S8EG? What HStuning recommended to me

Platinum plugs are not recommended for methanol usage, this is why I originally chose Iridium. Since Silver can tolerate methanol, I'm going to test them.
