    found some extra torque

    after havin the car for 6 months i decide to change the plugs as i found the 2.2 was gettin a bit sluggish so i went to my local parts shop and asked for the best plugs for the 2.2. when i opened the box they only had 1 prong but the ones i took out had 3, put them in anyway and didnt feel any difference so i done a search and found out the the vauxhall ones are the best. got them and fitted them today and god dam the car runs alot better and the torque is unbelieveable it pulls like a turbo.

    VXLs 2.2 plugs are tri electrodes, not sure what the rest of the astra range uses.
