Default Crappy Autolites

Okay, I replaced the spark plug wires with Magnicore blues. The local Auto Zoo only stocked autolite ap5263 plugs. When I installed them the car actually ran WORSE. On a hunch, I re-installed the used plugs. ZOOOM.
I intend to return the autolites, if I can. Does anybody have any experience with E3 plugs? I just happen to have a set here (E3.66).

And how important is it to fix TSB 09-007-04?

Thanks all.

I have been running those Autolite plugs with Crane plug wires for the last 20,000 with no problem, they were gapped at .040. Have gotten in the high 20 MPH on the highway going to Michigan and back.
