Maybe my experience was partly clouded by medication ... <g>, but in 
reverse polarity:-
* the electrode wear was higher than "normal"
* the engine didn't seem as smooth running.

The CDI system certainly fired fouled plugs easier!

My crossfiring episode was with a high compression v8.
The biggest problem was the lead geometry at the dizzy cap itself.
