    Are you getting an EML light?
    Only on acceleration or on cruising too?
    Losing power/juddering/cutting out?
    Does it sound like it might not be firing on all 4? For the time it takes you may aswell get a wire brush to your sparkplugs....

    i dont understand all the problems you guys have with plugs,

    Stage 1 standard copper NGK heat range 6, Job done!

    Slight misfire on idle every now again but have been told this down to the characteristics of the engine.

    does this stuttering happen when you have your a/c on?
