shorty spark plugs

After exhaustive searching,I didn't come up with much. I run R45TS plugs, and tried to find an equivalent,in a shorter plug, but not much luck, other than Acell. Anyone have any suggestions? Those plug heat shields(boots) would work, but would be resting on the header tubes, which would shorten the lifespan of them. I see Taylor makes an aluminum cap that fits over the boot, wonder if those might be a solution?

Accel makes a standard thread shorty plug. That it ?

There are 1/2" header Flange extension that use flat head screws, then bolt header to the flange extension. Might help with heat too.

There are the old school 30's plug ends that are brass, they might work. You have to unscrew the plug tip , get it the bare fine threads, and connect the secondary wire with a nut.

I've found the NGK's to be almost as short as the accel shorty plugs.
Autolite "AR" series plugs are supposed to be short as well but I have yet to try them.
