You may not have run the 8's long enough since with NGK the higher numbers are "colder"
From another site.....
NGK indicates the heat range in the middle of the plug number. For example, BCPR6ES-11 has a heat range of 6. (The number after the “-“ is the Gap.) NGK plugs are colder the higher the number, hotter the lower the number.
Starting with part # BKR6E-11 (Heat Range 6), a colder plug would # BKR7E-11 (Heat Range 7), a hotter plug would be # BKR5E-11 (Heat Range 5).
EXCEPTION: NGK Racing Plugs: (Any NGK plug that begins with the letter “R”)
For NGK Racing Plugs, the Heat Range is located AFTER the hyphen.
Example: R5671A-10 has a Heat Range of 10. A colder plug would be # R5671A-11 (Heat Range 11), a hotter plug would be # R5671A-9 (Heat Range 9).
Some NGK Racing Plugs are also available in half heat ranges. These are displayed as a 2 or 3 digit number after the hyphen. For example, R6120-85 has a 8.5 Heat Range and R6120-105 has a 10.5 Heat Range.
The passenger seat is 15 miles an hour faster than the drivers seat.
