Default Spark Plug ?

I bought a set of Bosch Platinum +4 and was wondering if it was ok to use
these in my PT. And if anyone else has used these plugs before and how good
are they. Thank you for any input.

They suck !!!! I used them in my wife's N/A and return them two weeks later...they gave me a bad idle When I returned them, one of the Advance Auto parts guy knew the problems with those plugs on Mopar 2.4 and 2.0 engines. He recommended going with Regular Platinums or NGK....He said all those plus 2 or plus 4 are mainly for "advertisement" and they don't do anything.

I put them in my used 02 n/a PT more than 2 yrs ago (not long after I bought the car), along with new wires, and they have been perfect. The car had an idle stumble that was cured by the plugs/wires, both of which had been original. The car still idles very smooth today, though she has always had a cold stumble above 2K rpm until she warms up. (When I say cold, I mean the air temp is 32F/0C or less)

My 08 PT (base) seem to like the RE16MC (Champion 443 copper) gapped .040.

You can always return them and get a set of regular Bosch Platinum. I use them on my N/A and they work fine.

I think I may just go with the platinums and see how they work.
Thanks
