    Well, if you dont have any in the engine and you install a set (dont forget to connect the wires) you will usually make more power.

    LOL... I'll put money on the table with a back to back vs the TR55's or the TR6's. Anybody game?

    Before we even developed the spark plug we sent prototype parts to SDConcepts in RI for a 3rd party opinion on them. Even in prototype form and in back to back tests our equipment crushed the competition as far as power output.

    That being said, I'll send a FREE set of our K6 plugs to anybody with a high revving high HP LS engine as long as they put it in writing they will do a back to back and return the results. This includes any vendors here.

    I'll have a tech thread up as soon as the moderators approve it to show the differences between our equipment and everybody elses. WeaponX Performance is a collaboration of the best engineers in the industry that develops based on SAE whitpapers and proven engineering principals, not gimmiks or hoaxes.

    I would jump on this if I had the money for dyno time and a new set of TR55's.

    But, I don't.
    And will happily leave 1RWHP on the table when I pay $2 a plug for the NGK's and you are asking $11 a plug for yours.

    Thanks

    We bend over backwards to make sure our customers receive the best product and service possible and stand by all our products and customers 100%.

    Also, all our equipment goes through third party testing before final release so that we have peace of mind that people are getting what they pay for. It's not an option, but a commitment to provide the best products in the industry.

    BTW WeaponX has no affiliation with WeaponR or any other company.

    If you're saying they deliver higher RPM performance than others, i'll be glad to take a set-in auto X we're always in the 4000-6000 range for damn near a minute

    We have seen more then 1RWHP.

    Also, our spark plugs last for 60K, NGK coppers are lucky to last 10K.

    By the time I spend $16 for a set of 8 NGK's 6 times I just spent $96 which is more money then our spark plugs for the same amount of drive time. Not to mention your under the car spending anywhere from 1-3 hours changing out the number 8 cylinder plug 6 times.

    The old saying is true, you get what you pay for. If you purchase a quality component it will last and outperform.

    I don't know about others but I would rather put a good set of plugs in, reap the rewards of better mileage, better power and better engine response and have the spark plugs pay you back in gas and performance over saving a few dollars for your first few thousand K's.

    Just my opinion though

    Ive had my TR-6s in my 458WHP All motor GTO running moderately rich for over 20000 miles. When i changed my valve springs i checked the plugs and they were gapped the correct number that i put them in at and they were perfectly fine

    ok, i'll be the noob who asks:

    what makes 1 plug better than the rest? Does it fire hotter? burn cleaner? Where is the the difference noticable? Only in dyno or mpg's? Or can you actually rev faster with better plugs? Will you really feel a difference between 2 performance plugs?

    I wish the moderators would approve my thread... I've got tons of good information on the benefits... I'll link it once it's up.

    Case and point #1

    Many people claim a 12rwhp gain with a good set of ignition wires. Real world I can't comment on but the idea is that lower resistance wires allow more available power to the spark plug. Some wires are 1000 ohms, others come in at 300 ohms and others yet at 50 ohms.

    What if I told you EVERY spark plug in all of your engines have an internal resistance of anywhere from 5,000 to 10,000 ohms or more due to the internal materials?

    Anybody pull out your spark plug and measure it. I'll bet you will find a resistance of 5000 ohms or more. If people are convinced a spark plug wire with 1000 less ohms of resistance makes power what if I told you our high output spark plugs have an internal resistance of about 5 ohms on average which means our spark plugs have anywhere from 4995 to 9995 less ohms of resistance then ANY competitor spark plug. This is because of our superior material selection and design. This is only one point of our spark plug design. I'll fill everybody in on the other benefits and design differences as well in the TECH thread that is going up soon.
