Re: (TurboGTIK)

To what torque did you fasten the plugs? A loose plug can do some really funny things. A tight plug can do some really expensive things.

only one and a half turns total?
Im sorry but this sounds like you might have done some very expensive damage. If you cross threaded the plug, and its not sitting all the wya, your going to have a leak where air is getting into the engne not from the intake, which is bad. Also if you did croos thread the plug (very possible in an aluminum head) you just royally screwed up your cylinder head. In which case if your lucky it can be rethreaded, if not, it needs to be replaced.
