not sure on your choice of plugs but i do know that with a mag the plug caps with a built in resistor are to be avoided

Spot on!  There are two popular types on the market at the moment, NGK type LZFH non resistor and some unbranded rubber ones (originating from Wassell) also non-resistor. They both retail at about £1.25 each.

If you can still get Denso iridium plugs without resistors, they may perform slightly better than standard types.
