Kimo Saaby, Not only are you full of yourself, you are full of sh_t. I ran Bosch Platinum plugs in my 83 900T gapped at .026 and my 87 900S and 87 9000S gapped at .028. I put the Bosch Platinum + 4 plugs in my 9000 at about 165,000 miles. I have run the same + 4 plugs since then, and I now have 217,200 on my 9000. Except for checking and tightening the plugs, I have done nothingelse to them. If you have the Direct Ignition, then you run your NGKs, otherwise there is nothing wrong with Bosch Platinum plugs. May be Saab thought Bosch was supplying too many parts for Saab. Maybe the fuel injection system, Oxygen sensor, distributor cap/rotor and AIC valve were more than enough. I'm sure there are a few other Bosch components made with the Saab name and a Saab part number. I wish I still had my 78 Alfa Romeo GTV Coupe. I had to teach a dentist with a 260Z a nasty lesson, when he tried to beat to my village. That 6 cylinder just couldn't pull my 2.0 liter 4 cylinder, overhead cam, mechanical fuel injection Alfa. You don't need Bosch for your ass. You need Preparation "H." Ken Kimo Saaby wrote: > > Ken... > > don't talk to me about Saabs! At least I know what frigging SPARK PLUG to > use!
