So far... I've gone through a set of OWS Iridiums and i felt no difference they perform no better that the stock platiniums.

Currently on NGK (also iridiums) .... seems not much diff as well.... well maybe a bit better.... but for that minute improvement, it could well be psychological as I paid 20% more for them compared to the OWS. lol

What is a 4-point spark plug and how is it different fro twin-tip OWS spark plugs?

what are the benefits?

I've been using OWS twin tip iridium plugs for a while now, along with a Ractive conical filter and tri phase module. Prior to this I was using stock plugs (Optra has NGK) with the same setup.

There is a definite increase in the performance. Power delivery is now smoother and more instantaneous. I'm definitely happy with the result.

Hi,

To the best of my knowledge OWS only makes twin tip plugs. You can go in for either MSD Cables or Splitfire.

I've been using NGK+Splitfire combo since about a month now. I've fitted them at the same time i got the K&N conical filter fitted so don't know exately how much difference combo alone makes.

Goldsun!
PM Viper. He stocks different brands of Iridium plugs and Cables. When I checked, HKS were out of stock. But you can try your luck. The rates are reasonable too.

For K&N filters you can approach Mahaveer Auto on G.P Road. They are also authorised dealers for K&N.
