Just don't fall for all the hype about spark plugs giving you more horsepower they won't unless the ones you have are just plain worn down to nubs. But your best bet is to go with a stock replacement plug like AutoLite or motorcraft which are one in the same. I've said this before whatever you do don't buy Bosch plugs have heard nothing but pain from those plugs.

Re: Spark plugs

NGK Iridium IX's are pretty good. I like them a lot. Definately stay away from Bosch and also those stupid E3's.

It's all just sales hype. There's no benefit over a regular plug. When it comes to air, water, and electricity, they all have the same characteristics. They always follow the path of least resistance. So when you see spark plugs with four points, or a ring or whatever.. the spark (kernel) is always going to go the very closest point, even if it's .0001" closer than the next point until that point it's jumping to wears down and it goes to the next closest point. The only good thing about the four pointed plugs is that they last a really long time.. but the downside is they're impossible to gap. The E3's just like any other plug always are going to say they do this and that.. the truth is they're just another plug with a fancy design.. and that's all you're really paying for. You might ask why I like the NGK Iridium IX's then.. it has to do with resistance, plug temperature, the material used, etc. Those coupled with an aftermarket ignition system work really well. I use them with the MSD coils and I've noticed a pretty good increase in top end. I also use nitrous, so I like to make sure that I have spark right when I need it with no worries. Hope this all helps!!

Thats what ads are supposed to do. Show how good they are. Not what sucks about them. They cracks, the diamond heads break off, and they are way to expensive

I have the e3 in my 2006 Durango, Hemi, they work great. I gained approximately on average an extra 80 km per tank of fuel.

Re: Spark plugs

you can tell a difference if your factory ones need replacing. I would recommend replacing copper every 30-50k miles (unless you notice detonation or missing or rough idle) if supercharged check copper every year and change otherwise just check them regularly.
