SF Bay Area peeps!

I need a 2nd, 3rd opinion on how my new (08 ) performs. Its seems....tired....yet powerful sometimes to me, but I have nothing to compare it to. It may be fine, or it may need new plus or something.
Mid range torque seems sluggish, but I have not had a chance to really drive it either. Still, not yet blown away! (Be kind!)

Who's out there!?

If it doesn"t feel a lot quicker than your Miata it has a problem.

The Redline should be substantially faster than the MX-5. Without scanning it not much I can contribute. Plugs would be a good starting point.

Well, it may be a bit sluggish down low in the RPMs if you get on it and it doesn't downshift assuming this is an auto.

Changing them is pretty easy. You remove the plastic engine cover, unplug the four coils, remove the coils with one 10mm bolt (think it's 10mm), then remove the plugs with a spark plug socket. I have a coil pack cover on my engine so it makes it a little harder than stock actually. LOL

As for plugs and gap...not sure which is best for the 2.0 Turbo.
