Last minute spark plug question

Fellas, I bought some copper plugs from the local FLAPS and now as I'm pulling up some of the tech articles, they all say to make sure to get the "high-heat" Bosch plugs only...

will the plugs I have work?
am I jeopardizing something by putting these in?
where can I get the correct Bosch ones locally?

Here's what I bought: http://www.amazon.com/Champion-344-RC9YC-Traditional-Spark/dp/B000HLODSM

kinda funny, when i fill out my car make and model on the Amazon site, it says: This product does not fit your 2000 Porsche Boxster

ummm... who's wrong? AutoZone or Amazon?

Stick with the Beru or Bosch. Get 'em from Pelican. Too easy.

You can use just about any brand plug, as long as it is the correct heat range. We have been running Denso Iridium plugs in both M96’s and a few Turbo’s with no issues……
