[DML] Re: spark plugs/brake fluid 3 vs. 4



Harold,
why would you put something in between "old" stuff to get some gain, 
when replacing old parts with better performing parts will really 
improve? I have replaced coil and cables by Johns 40kV coil and MSD 
cables. Result: 2 more kilometers per liter (approx 5 Mi per gallon).

Furthermore my car has more spunk even at lower speeds, but performs 
awfully better at higher rpms. I guess a quarter mile now probably 
would bring blush on muscle cars now :D

And I have to agree on Johns prices: Nology over here (Europe) costs 
some 400 US Dollar! My set from John only 172 including shipping.
I rest my case.

Welmoed.
