heres the pats number for NGK plugs to use with nitrous these are nonplatinum 2degreescolder (forGT) and you gap em at .035
ngk bkr7e (gt)
i think and im not positve the gt-s would be bkr9e because the gts has a colder plug to start with.

I called NGK USA tech center its a toll free number (877-473-6767)
I told him I was running Nitrous and needed a plug 2 degrees colder for a 2000 Celica GT-S 6-speed Engine 2ZZFE
Stock plug I have in my car is IFR6T-11
He told me he could do a 1 degree colder plug its the plug you mentioned. He first mention the BKR7E-11 but said the gapping is .044 and you want to go to a smaller gap then he mentions
BKR7E - (Stock number 6097) (pre gap .035 to .038 basic copper plug which won't last very long 10000 to 12000 miles but they are very cheap price wise and he said they will work)
Then he mentions a racing plug that would last longer and is 2 degrees colder. But price is alot more expensive
R7113-8 - (Stock number 3650) I didn't get to much details since my other line was ringing for my job. I think they are Platnium racing not sure anyone else wanna call to confirm??
Its a toll free number 877-473-6767
Also I am in South Jersey I called around to get these plugs locally but didn't have any luck. So I order a box (10) from sparkplugs.com. Hopefully they're be here this week.
Prices from http://www.sparkplugs.com
BKR7E - $1.99
R7113-8 $ 17.41
Heres a link to NGK site to decode NGKs plug numbers
2000 Celica GT-S just a few mods
Good info...but as everyone else on here says....avoid platinum plugs for any nitrous application!
RyZerX - How big of a shot are you going to be running? I myself am in the midst of searching for plugs...
I am wating on Speed-Technologies.com to get an order in of some Iridium plug that is 2 steps colder than stock. Can't recall the exact part number right now...as soon as I get the part number, I will toss it up on here asap.
Another thing, when you get your plugs, please post here as to how well they worked. I have heard nothing but good things regarding the NGK-BKR7E plugs. My only questions rely on the gapping...some people tell me to go to .040 and others say stay at .044.
I dont know much about the gapping, but personally I would not gap them to .035 since stock we are at .044 gap. To me that seems like a big change...when on NGK's website they say for every 50hp, drop the gap 0.04.
I hope someone on here can shed some more light on this damn gapping issue! Its hard to find on the net... lol

WHo does that song in your Vid IRL?
Made that video last summer...track on there is from Jay-Z - Big Pimpin. :)
As for the plugs, I found the part that I will be getting...
These are Denso Iridium Power plugs, part number:
2000 Toyota CELICA 1ZZFE 1.8L - L4 IK16 0.044
2000 Toyota CELICA 2ZZGE 1.8L - L4 IK20 0.044
That is the stock heat range...we need to go 1 or 2 steps colder for a 50shot (safe than sorry) so you are looking for the IK22 or IK24 plugs for the GT-S. For the GT you are looking at the IK20.
These plugs are not cheap..but they sound very good. I will be testing these out in the next couple of weeks...so if you guys want, I can give you an update.
