is there a high performance spark plug for the stanard heads? all i saw is long spark plugs while stock plugs are short ones

can i install the long ones or it will hit the pistons inside?

in my 1641 duel carb setup all i run are the ngk that is for a 1600dp, i have a igniter conversion in my 009 dizzy and a matching coil, and i run my gap around .030-.031 and she runs great

No, You can't use the long plugs
as they would hit the pistons..
 
they are for the latest heads only..
 
the standard NGK plugs for beetles is the B5HS
B6HS is a colder plug
 
so maybe you could try them...
 
standard Bosch plugs W175T1 or W5AC
so W6AC would be colder..
 
I use standard Bosch or Beru plugs
with a high energy ignition system
 
engine starts first time every time..
I also use a rotor without the resistor in the top
as the resistor can burn out...

if you look at your rotor it has a black filling on top leading from the middle of the rotor to the end where the copper piece touches the pins inside the distributor.. its buried in there..

now i know where is the resistance, so the question is should i remove it with my setup or change the rotor or should i leave everything as it is?

If your running a captive discharge system yes you need to remove it because the resistor would be burned out by the pure voltage of the coil.. Since your running a bosch blue coil it is perfectly fine to leave it in there. The compufire ignition module makes your car starts very quickly and nice =) but unless your running a CDI your great.. If you buy a CDI though your car will start great in the mornings even when cold and you can open your spark plugs up more.. But make sure your wires can take the voltages..
