Ya black interior is a way better looking than tan or blue that some of these trucks come with, its funny that you say that your going to turn the interior black becuase some of my panels in the rear of the cab that i picked up are either scratched up a little or a little discolored so i was going to spray them black so they looked brand spankin new and repaint the rear seats cuz there scratched and a little rusted to. what I would do if i was you,for the doors since the panels are just a piece of particle board and a strip of vinyl leather just measure and cut your pieces then bam new nice doors. have you tried looking on ebay or craigslist for parts i always seem to find something of use when i look.

the knob is the original, the circle that shows the gear set up was missing so i put a skull that is actually a t-shirt pin I found and it fit perfectly, and the boot I found at a parts store. the interior on yours could use a little tlc mine wasnt as bad as yours but it was i think is safeto say disgusting i dont have any pics of when I picked up the truck but it nasty. what I did was went to junk yards and yanked the interior out cleaned it and now it all looks new, its awsome. your truck looks pretty sweet though the grill and your front skid plate I would kill for, plus the body isnt half bad either except the front bumper which is an easy fix to

Although they are good for emissions that isn't the reason I would run both plugs. The motor will run more efficiently and better with them.

Ah, don't get me started. Too late.

There are a lot of misconceptions about the dual spark plug heads used on the NAPS motors. First, although it does reduce emissions there are no emissions side plugs. Here's a few facts about the dual plugs:

Both plugs fire at the same time. Two ignition points allows the designers to be able to use more EGR to lower cylinder temperatures which reduces NOx without bad running at low steeds. Dual plugs means that there are two points of ignition which will shorten the burn time. Think of lighting a candle at both ends. This shorter burn also shortens the peak cylinder pressure time when NOx is produced. Less ignition advance reduces the chance of pinging and increases efficiency too. It's no surprise that 6,000 hp fuel cars run dual plugs.
