Well I have heard of and used Splitfire spark plugs in many older cars including Alfa Romeo engines from the 1980s. Last car I used them in was a 1995 SEAT Ibiza GTi 2.0
However have not used them in a 147 ...assuming that is what the mechanic was talking about ;)

Based on my impressions of the poster :rolleyes: I'd hasten to guess that this spit-fire thing is one of those go-fast 10 cent resistors they sell on ebay or one of those magical, power inducing filter cones that get hawked on late night T.V. :rolleyes: ;) :D

Of course it could also be this: http://www.hotrodsetc.net/menu.html :cheese:

19 inch rims? Are you mad? :D
And you are 17? Isn't it illegal to drive? :D
Custom Wide bodykit? Please don't give it the corse/saxo treatment :D
