Platinum plugs??? Resistor plugs??

Only one of the plugs listed is generally considered acceptable. Platinum a no-no. The NGK non-resistor is the only plug that most knowledgeable owners would use.

Balderdaash - I put the Bosch Platinum Plus 4 plugs in my 1977 450 SLC with 32,000 miles. It runs MUCH better than before, smoother but seems to actually have more power. I have to be careful now not to leave rubber from a stop light.

Best thing I have done so far!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
