Shorty Spark Plugs-Pro Topline Heads????

I am very confused. I need help finding some true shorty plugs for my Pro Topline Iron Lightning 180cc heads (angle plug). I've bought a set of Champion V59C (recommended by Pro Topline) and a set of NGK's (don't have the # right now) The NGK's are exactly the same length as the Champions.
I need something shorter to be able to install them around my headers. I've tried to cross reference these plugs to Accel, but there is too much confusing info out there.
How can I find the shortest plug that will work for my engine? (350)
They need to be 14mm thread and .460 reach and a medium heat range.
Any help will be GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks,
John

Pro-topline ? They have been gone for a couple of years now. They were bought out by Comp. Cams. They are now RHS Pro-Action heads !

Yes, Pro-topline had some quality control issues and also had some bad castings that were made overseas. Since they became RHS Pro-Action, I have not heard of any issues and the flow numbers on these heads are awesome !
