    I am putting in Bosch Premium wire set ... and Bosch Platinum 2 plugs ... is
    that ok? and, should I put anything on them to make the easier to get out? The
    plugs say they give more powerful spark. Should I not put them in? Roy,

  2. I thought the platinum plugs gave some users probs - the factory plugs seem
    to be the faves. And if they don't come with a little anti-seize on the
    threads, some put a dab on. And don't over-torque (I don't remember the
    spec off the top of my head). Don't forget to run the new wires exactly
    like the OEM's (with attention to the cyl 1 and cyl 4 placement because of
    its interaction with the computer).

    Kirk is good to give the science and detail behind this stuff - Kirk, you
    hearing this? (smile)

    Don't forget some silicone grease on the boots. NGK-V's are my
    preferred plug for my Saturn.

    What do you mean Cyl placement? Do you mean Firing Order?

  9. In my many experiences I have found Bosch plugs to be flat junk. Check
    the wires with an ohm meter to make sure they are good! I have run into
    many brand new sets with at least one or 2 nearly or totally shot wires.
