lOOk at my spark plugs!!

I was pulling out my plugs out of my turbo car to check the gap on them and them seemed alot whiter than I thought they should be. The guy I got the car from put them in so Im not sure how many miles are on them but would guess less than 500. What do you guys think? lean? so far the 4 plugs Ive pulled all look the same

crappy phone pic

I think I just figured out why they look so white, I was looking at some spark plug color chart and it says that could be a a sign of over heating or lean and a over heat is something I just had and fixing as we speak.

get a better pic... if they are black it is rich... do you see any specs on the strap? they actually dont look bad from pic... if they are a actual white it could be lean or hot but a ideal burn will leave kinda of a concrete color

White is fine. They are clean. You can't tell rich or lean from that pic unless they are overly rich
