Plugs looked good in color but AGAIN one fouled plug at the ceramic part!

Anyway switching back to old stock bosch plugs did not help much so next was checking the rotor and cap. Rotor was my own made resistorless but it had some dirt on top of the middle contactor that I sanded away. Cap was clean.

Now the car works fine after one subaru moment when one plug EDIT PLUG CONNECTOR disconnected while driving. Its funny how these engines can mimic other brands.

I used 0.03 for the plugs and set the timing where it felt best and now the car runs really well. It does still sound a bit like beetle when not totally hot so there must be some leaks at the exhaust system but I'm happy until next ohnoes moment comes. I hope the bosch plugs with smaller gap can handle the heat better. Thanks for helping
