Default E3?

Anyone using the E3.66 plugs? Do you like them? Can you feel any difference?

You will find that if your plugs are pretty old, a new set of anything will make you PT or anything else feel better. A friend once said your not gaining HP. Your recovering HP from the use of warn plugs. As to the specific brand. It will come down to how long they last.

i have no clue why anyone would want spark plugs where the tips had tomato cages on them. there's a lot of pics like this out there and most seem to have well under 10000 miles. if you get them, you should check them when you change your oil and see how they look.

i bet if all plugs came like E3's, the cool mod would be to cut two of the three legs off and file the remaining ground strap back... so they'd look like this:

You can't make HP with plugs. But you can loose some if you don't get them set to optimum gap. If you burn off the electrodes like rob shows, I'm betting that you might eat a cylinder wall with all that metal. Just get you some good quality plugs and go on to the next thing.
