oversize plugs are available. they come in o/s1 and o/s2 and you need to buy the tap to go with em.

any auto parts supplier. tell em what you have and tell em you want the first oversize plug and tap. they normally have it all on file.
if it's an au you'll need to be careful of the crossmember when you tap it cos they tend to try and push the tap off square.
