    I never ran Autolite plugs in a GM vehicle, I guess I always equate the name to a Ford product.

    I always think of Bosch as a ford plug, and ac delco/champion as a gm plug... Ngk just a good plug for all.. and i never ran Autolite but everybody i know who races at the track uses Autolites... but i heard how some motors just don't like certain plugs... and i just got my car and it has bosch 2 pt plugs,, and i heard they are crap... so gota change them out asap.....

    Any every $ i can save buys more parts! more parts =

    I agree that some plugs work better with some engines over others. I used to have a .305 sbc and it did not like Autolites, but did like the Bosch Platinum, but only the Platinum. Any other plug and it would run like crap.


    I've been running those E3 plugs in my wife's Jeep to see how they would do. So far seen no major changes over stock. I did get her fuel economy up to 2 mpg more on our last long drive, but for running around town no difference. So maybe they are helping.


    I will not run them in the T/A.

    never had a problem with autolite.. had the double plats in my tahoe when i first got it and did a tune up on it a month or two later and it was fine. i did replace it with the standard acdelco and it didnt feel any better. champions on the other hand i wouldnt run in anything but a mopar and bosch i probably wouldnt run in anything, just my .02

    i had put bosch in my old monte carlo and it bogged and hesitated. swapped in some autolite double platinums and it ran great...immediately smoothed out and power was restored. i've seen similar things happen on other gm cars with bosch and autolite. as far as i'm concerned autolites are very good plugs. i put delco iridiums in the camaro this last time around but i may put autolite iridiums in instead next time.

    I'm running Bosch Iridium plugs in my camaro now without any problems. As long as you stay with a know brand you should be ok.
