Thanks. Does anyone know where I can look on the net for more info
on these wires? Is there perhaps an online shopping system where I
can go wander around and look at these things?

I recently saw a test where they put a whole bunch of plugs up against
each other in a dyno test. Bosch Super-4 gave something like a 2.4 bhp
increase and 2.6 lbft increase in power and torque. Champions were
still the best with a 2.6 bhp increase in power. Minimal power (+-1.5kW)
but nevertheless interesting. :) What's the benefit of these Bosch
tri-electrodes as opposed to the quad-electrodes and normal
mono-electrode plugs from Champion?
