    Hi.

    I hope this isnt a silly question but i have bought Bosche spark plugs and i was wondering if they are already pre gapped?

    The problem is the car is a bit sluggish when up until around 3000rpm.

    Is this when the turbo kicks in?

    my turbo kicks in at more 4000rpm..... as for the sparks, i would imagine that they are already gapped.

    im sure ill be corrected if im wrong :)

    if you are chipped run a .28 thou gap, .32 if not chipped. Bosc ones tend not to be gapped unless they are the 4 prong ones. The ko3 is at full pressure by around 3000 to 3500 in my experience

    I was recomended to run my plugs at .28 on my chipped A4 T Sport. Which surprised me as my Ford Escort runs with a .8 gap at 25psi :?. Different cars with different set ups
