What does spark blowout feel like?

Car just feels slow? Sounds? Smells? Tastes?

Nope, know exactly what you mean. Try a lower gap to see if it helps.

On my 4V procharger car, it was choppy hesitating, on the TT 5.0 it was just a total dead spot.

Hook a jump box to it if it's in the trunk and try again.
