    ATP's Spark Plug Removal

    Ok, just to follow in @entira's shoes. I swapped plugs out after going from stock to FBO. No issues when I was testing COBB Stage 1 but after flashing to S2+ I get limp mode instantly when I go WOT. I was getting misfires on cylinder 4 and 6. As well as fuel pump plausibility (2aaf) and Lambda probe behind catalytic converter 2, signal (2c78). Reset the codes and went out and went WOT, instantly got a misfire on cylinder 4 but no other codes. I pulled the plugs and got this (cylinder 1 on the left, 6 on the right):

    They look pretty clean to me, any thoughts?

    Swapped in new Bosch replacements. Have not had a chance to make another pull yet.

    They look pretty even from plug to plug, but that looks like a lot of crap on them, to me. How old are they?

    Unfortunately, I am not sure. I have never replaced them and I have had the car for ~10k miles. Not sure when the last owner did them.

    Last owner probably never replaced them. They look pretty worn

    Fair enough, I need to run through the service records. I would hope they were replaced at one time under Maintenance but maybe not.

    Side note:

    When changing the plugs I lost the nut plate that the screw for the cowl uses on the driver side. Number 9 is the cowl, the screw goes in the front drivers side "leg". There is a nut plate for the screw. Anyone know where to get a replacement?

    Hardware store or dealer. Common problem I'm afraid.

    You can run that cowl with pretty much no screws at all. It will stay still. The only 2screws you need are the 2 front micro filter ones.
