Sorry Linus, But The Platins are a totally different plug.  Scott J and I are
running them.  If you want to find out for your self go to the dealer and get
a S4 plug...  For $30  Or call Imparts (they Have a 800#) and get a platin
for the early 911... Same plug.  The Platins require the removal of the metal
sheild at the plug on the spark plug wire.



Running Platins... NOT Platinums
