Today HP Tv aired a suggestion that indexing spark plugs in Vortec heads can promote a better burn. They showed an orientation favoring the open side of the spark pointing toward the exhaust valve.

I found some 906 vortecs for sale on CL for $400. They're proclaimed to be unused -- guess I'd have to try to confirm that somehow.
