    I think you'll find most people around here run either ngk's or delco plugs. Cant go wrong with either IMO. I personally run ngk tr55ix iridium plugs. I wouldnt waste my money on those silly E3 plugs.

    one thing i dont understand is why lots of people on forum sites bag on the e3 plugs without any evidence to back up their claims. Has anyone on here even tried them???

    Its just the latest "WONDER" plug to hit the market. Its all hype. Spark is only gonna jump one gap at a time so the other 2 gaps are really worthless and in fact might even get in the way of the flame front.
    NGK, AcDelco are tried and true good quality plugs. No real need to look else where.
