Re: Door latch screws GTE

Ace Hardware has the short shaft tapered phillips head screws in stainless that were on my 330 They are dirt cheep If there is not one around you let me know and I will send you some, they will more than tide you over until a 100 point replacement presents M

Re: Plugs

Thanks for the tips and the spirited discussion and to Zac for putting another urban legand to bed I am not looking for more speed just due for clean plugs but do agree that more advance (w of cource higher octane) is an easy way for some additional power.
