For the street I would go with bpr7es ... Same plug as the bp5es except Resisted and 2 heat ranges colder.
Off road, bp7es ... Same plug except 2 heat ranges colder.

Same side as the spark plug

I don’t drive it much on the street so not a problem

Just to be clear, prevent bad things and wasted money.

efs is not the same body as the es, it is a tapered seat plug ... the es is a gasket seat.
f = tapered seat.

The Br7ef sound like the go, thanks.

Sure hope you're yanking my chain, if not ...

Your money, Your heads, IMO Purchasing those plugs would be a fail ...

They are a different body style from what you posted in this image.

The plugs you posted in that image are of Gasket Seat style.

The BR7EF plug you posted a link to on modularheadshop.com is of a Tapered Seat style.

They are NOT interchangeable.

Unless of course it had the wrong style in it in the first place ... I do not know what style your heads use, Tapered Seat or Gasket Seat.

I use BP7ES in both street and track cars with no issues with RFI. The std Valiant is a BP5ES which uses a gasket and yes those BPR7EF won't fit. Looking at the damage to the plug I think it's pre-ignition not detonation that eroded the plug. Are you tightening them tight enough so they can transfer the heat from the plug properly?
Oh and if I'm correct it will blow the asre out of your engine like a hand grenade.

Finally got the skin back on the tailgate frame. Hopefully I will be able to get a full skim coat of filler on this weekend
