How bout if the ground wire is THAT insufficient that its not allowing the spark plugs enough amperage to make a complete spark? Only way I can see this as happening.. I've seen some pretty crummy grounds in some older cars in the past... but if you figure out the current draw of plugs I'd imagine that even a 10 gauge wire would handle that amperage and I've never seen a car with that small of a ground... Sounds to me like those great resistor "chips" they sell on ebay...
