Valves and pistons

I want to go with titanium valve springs and forged rods and pistons. Does any one know where I can find the valves and retentioners and all that fun stuff? I have a guy to do my valve job but he can't get titanium. only stock. Also, does any one know a good spark plug to run with nitrous and where I could get those?

Monkeywrenchracing.com sells the pistions, rods, not titanium valves but black nitrated, some of the strongest valves you can buy, and stiffer valve springs if you like to rev your motor. The spark plugs depends on how much nitrous you want to run

I am running a 50 shot of nitrous express. the wet kit. I have ran about 2 1/2 bottles already, with my stock plugs. But now my car idles at like 600rpm and it is missing randomly at idle. I can't figure it out so I am going to start with plugs, then try a valve job, then check pistons and rings. Sound good?

I need to take more pics, but it is normal wet kit. Also, does anyone know what the stock sparkplug (NGK) number is? what would be a colder one? and what are they gapped at? confused
