I put in the ngk iridium, in my 97 gt along with the msd coil packs and msd 8.5 mm wires. Must say it's nicer under the hood and runs like a brand new car. The 360 I paid for all from American muscle was a great investment.

True very true. If they are your stock coil packs i would replace them too, along with your wires. If you have to cash mine as well take care of it.

The Butt dyno is not a very good one.....I doubt that they "woke" your car right up.

I've never seen plugs add more than 5 hp and that is not detectable to the butt dyno....That's like saying I just put a new air filter in and now I do sick burnouts...

Wow,so I guess you ride around with me to make such an assumption,or do you doubt every post written. Or did you see my old plugs to even make such a judgement call. Perhaps you are just miserable and have to take shots at any and all posts made. I said they woke my car up and they did. Ok. I don't think they added any horsepower but they certainly helped throttle response. Or is that doubtable too.

So I guess then that when you do some form of work to your car you can't tell a difference as far as responsiveness or handling. I know my car. How it feels and performs at any and all speeds and pedal positions so if you want to comment on your "butt dyno" you go right ahead however do not for one second doubt mine when I am driving my car. K. I really couldn't care what you think to be honest as the op was asking about plugs not your opinion about spark plugs and the effect on my automobile. I wonder,did you even give an opinion on spark plugs or did you just chime in to try to discredit the effects of these spark plugs or my opinion on them. Perhaps you could just answer the ops question and keep your retarded remarks of my opinion to yourself.

You are right, I only chimed in to draw attention to how silly your statement was....It's what I do best....Don't hate. lol

You made it sound like those plugs are a great improvement over new plugs. It's only because your old plugs were beat to **** that it may have made any noticeable difference.

I probably did 1500 dollars of maintanance when I got my mustang including new plugs, new brakes, rotors, rear end fulid, tranny fluid, power steering fluid flush, brake fluid flush, fuel filter, new belts, iac valve, coolant...guess what....I didn't feel a thing.
