no throtte response=?

I had a bad spark plug on my spi. My acceleration was terrible. Only 38k on my car. You guys might wanna look into that if you have a problem like this. Arent plugs suppose to last for a long time? I bought a new set of oems.

Buy a set of Bosch +4 with the 4 electrodes. You'll feel the difference right away.

Once again, this has been tried and turned out to be a waste of money. Go NGK Iridiums or OEM instead of throwing your money out the window with Bosch +4's. If you don't believe me and only believe hype. then keep them in for a bit Cable and you'll see for yourself.

Korn: I go through a set of plugs now and again but what I really tear up are wires. Been through three sets and a set of OEM's. I have found the NGK Iridiums the best so far. Great idle and my mileage went up a bit. I've been at this game for over 4 years so I'm passing on the good stuff and forgetting the bad. Bosch +4's are BAD!
