will give the boosters a try. But that stuff eats plugs. My stock plugs don't feel so nice compared to ngk when i was testing.
Timing pull was -9.8 +- with stock plugs. The ngk's -8 +-

Is this timing pull at the same RPM range as where you feel the car is hesitating?

no, just in general throughout the rev range.

Problem figured out. :)

My full exhaust between 3000-4000rpm gives off a sound which cannot be explained. This sound was leading me to believe that there was a problem under acceleration but has no affect on performance. The fact that there was timing-pull also didn't help matters either.

Prash helped me out with this one. Thanks man :D

But i still prefer the 1-colder plugs. Feels more smoother and consistent. The timing-pull with the stock plugs was getting so bad that myself and Prash couldn't feel any torque kick in even though it was boosting fine. Just busy waiting for my new set to arrive.
