Once you get the cars dialed-in (compression, leaks, bearings, alignment, brakes) swap in new rubber and glass, you've got something which should last for years!

I installed a set in a customer's vehicle per request. He claims no change in power or MPG.

Same concept as the 4 pointed Bosch plugs, just provides more area for the spark to jump to. But the spark only jumps to one spot at a time anyway, so the result is just a plug that wears more slowly.

Basically, the plug either ignites the fuel or it doesn't. Despite Pulstar's bullsh*t, the spark can't make the fuel burn faster or more powerfully. A stronger spark just provides protection against misfires.

I have the E3 plugs in both my cars and the seemed to run better then the bosh and ngks i tried. They are a hotter heat range plug so they probablly wouldnt be a good idea for boosted applications. And it was in both my gt's befor i forget to mention the motor. Just my 2 cents.
