[SVO]Bosch Platinum and Turbochargers
Just got back some interesting information from Bosch on their Platinum
Here is there web page "http://www.aaol.com/Main/AftMktMfr/Bosch"
Here is what I got from them:
Thanks for contacting Bosch.
Confirming the engine in your mustang, my research shows it as an L4-2.3L
140cid, vin 'W'. The correct Bosch application is 4205/HR8DPX gapped at
"I know the VIN is incorrect and I'm awaiting a reply"
To make a blanket statement such as Platinum plugs don't work in a given
engine is simply a false statement. Turbocharged engines have been around
for many years, both in passenger and racing cars. I use Bosch platinums
in my Volvo 850 turbo, and had them in my 1993 Toyota Supra Twin-Turbo
rated at 320hp.
The ability to ignite a plug for combustion is dependent on the ignition
system not the spark plug. Bosch does not simply recommend applications
based on cross-referencing. We have facilities here in the US and in
Germany and Japan. We obtain a sample vehicle and test various Bosch plugs
until we arrive at our published application.
I hope this helps you. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any
Robert Bosch Corp.
