I believe the plugs spec'd for my NG CGT are a 4-electrode type but not the +4's.  I think I recall that they are more open around the electrode.

Well... you can't argue with success.

I think the problem with the +4 plugs is the electrode is completly covered 
except the top surface. I think that makes them foul out easy. It sounds like 
the plug you used is a different design and for whatever reason it works.
