    I think even if this did work, the minute gain (if any) wouldn't be worth my time! JMO!

    x2. And then you have the chance on cracking the ground strap which will break off at a most inconvient time (7600 rpm). :cry:

    The reason for this, I believe, is that the more sharp edges you have on a plug, the more spark you can get out of it. This is one of the reasons I use NGK or ND plugs. I can't remember the last time I used an american plug in a car.

    I never noticed NGK plugs were not made in USA. Goes to show you something as small as a spark plug isn't even produced in the states.

    Its amazing.

    All that time and effort when you can buy plugs that are made better. Time is money and the infitisamal gain for a daily driver isn't worth it. IMHO

    I'd sooner buy a better ignition system than screw around with drilling spark plugs.
