Subaru Stars newbie electrics

as a new newbie enthusiast am i wrong in assuming that newbies are less tolerant of after-market or less than factory spec plugs and ignition parts

that made very little sense...

but YES, you are wrong in assuming that... newbies are VERY tolerant of aftermarket spark plugs and will put anything in their engines... like i did last year.
the reality is that you need OEM plugs.

by the way, what was your point in posting this thread?

Hm, if you replace that second "newbies" with "Subies" it actually makes some sense.

sorry about any confusion folks - new to the car - new to the club- but did spend some time scanning the archives and noticed quite a few ignition and plug-related threads. still fishing around for a quick fix to low end power. just changed to ngk plats and have'nt had a chance to see what they can do through the 1500-2000rpm speeds or up closer to the red line

How in the heck do you drive your car without ever hitting 1500 rpm's, but still run the car above 2000 rpms?

Thumbs up oh man...

OMG, the further i read in this thread, the less sense it makes. Hey lov'em, are you from around these parts? (the U.S.) Perhaps you should restate your original question more clearly.
