Unfortunately, most here have little personal understanding of mechanics, engineering, or physics, so far as I can tell.

In my '67 327ci NGK V-power plugs are the only ones I've ever had good luck with. Most others will run okay for about a week or two,then it gets kinda crummy. Don't even bother with the newer platinum plugs in an old V8,they lasted 3 days,and were completely fouled out. I had to limp the the auto parts store on 5-6 cylinders to get my usual NGK's. Spendy mistake at ~$6 per plug. The center electrode is so small,that a speck of dust will totally foul them,let alone a bit of carbon/oil.

I have tried the same sparkplug experiments, DigitalJunkie. I found that NGK were pretty good, and platinum was not optimum for older cars, also.

Platinum plugs were prescribed for my R8 Gordini. Notice that the engine of this car had a pre-combustion chamber (probably to protect the tiny platinum electrode against oil, dust etc.).

Yup. Seems to be the pat answer for anyone who disagrees with the "all-knowing".

The funny thing is that he doesn't even know that a '924' has little to do with a real Porsche.

Oh Edmond, do tell us what you mean by that. Are you referring to the project originally intended as a VW or is there more you wish to enlighten us with?

Yeah right, or maybe, just maybe, you should check up on whom you're talking to.

You could end up with a few hefty surprises.
