Nice! Over on the Cruzetalk forum there's a few significant threads going about changing out the factory iridium/platinum plugs for traditional nickel steel tipped plugs (NGK V-Power in this case). Turns out, for some reason, the fancy materials plugs cause all kinds of issues with low RPM knock retard. If you wish to discuss I'd love to start a thread somewhere other than here to share some thoughts with an industry expert!
