Dont use bosch plat +4 plugs. Use NGK Copper +2 or Bosch OEM Copper +2. Do some searching on this site and others if you doubt.

The smaller hp number is "at the wheel", the larger hp number is the rating at the motor before the energy from the motor is transfered through the trans, drive train, etc.
