NOTICE

Please read this notice and only continue if you are willing to abide by our updated backorder acquisition and fulfillment terms of service.


Supply-chain disruptions have hampered our ability to acquire/restock items reliably. Additionally, a lack of backorder ETA information is a frustrating "new normal" for our hobby. As a result, we have had to change our BACKORDER ACQUISITION TERMS OF SERVICE. If you opt to have us "send backorders later", backordered items will ship automatically if we are able to get them within 30 days. Longer than 30 day backorders WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY CANCELLED. Made-to-order, Special-Order, and Direct-shipped items may take longer than 30 days, and will NOT be auto-canceled.


On the next page, you will be prompted to select a BACKORDER HANDLING INSTRUCTION for your Order Request. In every case, you are NOT CHARGED for out-of-stock items (we ONLY charge for items that are available to be shipped in a timely or reasonably reliable timeframe). If you opt to "send backorders later" you are automatically added to the waitlist for those items, and we post stock status / backorder info to your Order Status/Progress/History Detail View in your online Customer Account. You can email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not direct-shipped, special order or made/machined-to-order.

Currently many shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed). Please trust that even if we can't reply to your email promptly, we are continuing to work to fulfill your Order Request as best we can, and we will contact you once we have any new information that is not already posted in your online Order Progress/History area in your customer account.


Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Some of the items in your cart might be out-of-stock, and if that is the case, within a day or two we will post itemized stock status information to your account and/or email you to let you know. We appreciate your continued support and understanding.

NGK BP7ES Spark Plug, 14 x 3/4" Reach Threads, Projected Tip, 13/16" Socket
NGK BP7ES Spark Plug, 14 x 3/4" Reach Threads, Projected Tip, 13/16" Socket
Price: $4.95

NGK BP7ES Spark Plug, 14 x 3/4" Reach Threads, Projected Tip, 13/16" Socket is a projected tip spark plug, suitable for VW engines. The projector tip runs better under all conditions than conventional spark plug tips do (which tend to shroud the spark).

The BP7ES spark plug has a projected tip, suitable for carbureted and fuel injected aircooled VW engines. The projected tip runs better under all conditions (cold and hot) than conventional spark plug tips do (which tend to shroud the spark).

This plug is the correct heat range for HOT engines, since it's 2 steps colder than stock.

The BP7ES has 14mm threads, and is 3/4" reach (long). It fits the Type 4 heads, but it also fits the newer Factory VW DP heads, because the 1/2" reach plugs had a tendency to strip, so the 3/4" reach is an improvement.

NGK D8EA Spark Plug, 12 x 3/4" Reach Threads, Conventional Tip, 11/16" Socket
Price: $4.95

NGK D8EA Spark Plug, 12 x 3/4" Reach Threads, Conventional Tip, 11/16" Socket is a regular tip spark plug, suitable for VW engines. Regular tips are less expensive and give piston clearance that can be a problem with projected tips.

The D8EA has 12mm threads, and is 3/4" reach (long). It fits modified VW heads that utilize the smaller plug to make room for huge valves. If your heads use a "Motorcycle Plug" these are an excellent choice.

Heat Range: Stock Heat Range is a "5". "6" is used in busses and Type 3s. "7"s are a really "Hot Street" plug, and "8"s and "9"s are almost exclusively Turbo Use.

NGK BR7ES Spark Plug, 14 x 3/4" Reach Threads, with RESISTOR, Conventional Tip, 13/16" Socket NGK5122 is a regular tip spark plug, suitable for VW engines. Regular tips are less expensive and give piston clearance that can be a problem with projected tips.

The BR7ES spark plug has a conventional tip, suitable for carbureted and fuel injected aircooled VW engines. The conventional tip will tend to foul easier than the projected top plugs, and also shrouds the spark slightly compared to projected top plugs.

This plug is the correct heat range for HOT engines, since it's 2 steps colder than stock.

The B7RES has 14mm threads, and is 3/4" reach (long). It fits the Type 4 heads, but it also fits the newer Factory VW DP heads, because the 1/2" reach plugs had a tendency to strip, so the 3/4" reach is an improvement.

Heat Range: Stock Heat Range is a "5". "6" is used in busses and Type 3s. "7"s are a really "Hot Street" plug, and "8"s and "9"s are almost exclusively Turbo Use.

NGK BP6ET Spark Plug, 14 x 3/4" Reach Threads, 13/16" Socket
NGK BP6ET Spark Plug (per EACH), 14 x 3/4" Reach Threads, 13/16" Socket
Price: $7.95

NGK BP6ET Spark Plug, 14 x 3/4" Reach Threads 13/16" Socket is the best spark plug we have found for 14 x 3/4" equipped Type 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, and even Waterboxer engines! The Triple Ground Strap really lengthens plug life, and you'll feel the power too!

At Aircooled.Net we prefer NGK Spark Plugs over Bosch. The BP6ET spark plug has a projected tip, suitable for carbureted and fuel injected aircooled VW engines. The projected tip runs better under all conditions (cold and hot) than conventional spark plug tips do (which tend to shroud the spark).

*ACN RECOMMENDED!!!!*

Spark Plug Starter Threading Tool, 12" Long
Price: $24.95

Spark Plug Starter Threading Tool, 12" Long is a fantastic toolbox item! For years we used to use a length of breather hose to start spark plugs in difficult to access places, but this tool is better! This tool is a "Must Have" in the toolbox of any VW Beetle or Bus Enthusiast.

Internal Cable within a "stiff" Exoskeleton do it! We recommend that you loosen your plugs with your ratchet and socket as normal, then push this tool on and bend it so that it routes and aims properly. Now remove the plug. Put the new one in the tool, and it's already aimed for an easy thread starting job, minimizing the risk of cross threading! You'll finish the job with your ratchet and socket again. The Exoskeleton is stiff to hold it's shape, it won't wriggle, flex, or get tweaked if you have to "crank" the internal cable!
