Triples for the V8

I am running Triple Electrode NGK's in my V8 (same one used in the new A8)
and they are terrific. 1990-91 V8's suffer from Throttle hickups reprtedly
due to the single Oxygen Sensor (I understand that 92's went to duals)
and incomplete combustion.  Audi's fix was the Triple Electrode Plugs and 
replacing the Oxy Sensor often.

In my 875KCSTQ they were awesome.  Worlds worst plug: Bosch Platinums, as I have 
not found a car that they work well in.
