Default Spark Plugs

Which spark plugs do you run? Has anyone noticed any real advantages in the aftermarket plugs verses the OEMs?

I have always ran the standard NGK plugs. I never bought into the twin fire or split fire types tat claim double the spark. That is just simply not true since is violates many standards in physics.

So you're saying it's all hype and the important thing is to ensure your plugs are servicable (good gap and clean)?

Well the reason I ask is that I have read people making great claims about aftermarket sparkies, but I've only ever run OEM plugs. No issues, but hey, if you can get better, why not?

The Iradium ones put out some pretty decent gains.

A lot of the claims some of the manufacturer make is hype. Stick with a good plug, tune your bike properly and you will get some great gains.

The iridium plugs do a good job, I would need to see some dyno info compared to some other plugs.

Well, I beg to differ in respect to one type plug. The E3 plug.

The Grizz use to be kind of difficult to start when it was downright chilly in the winter ........ but since I've installed the E3 plug, the difference is like nite & day ...... and I don't have to choke it as much, nor keep it on as long.

But what really sold me was when I took the Bosh Iridium plugs out & put E3 plug in my Jeep ....... DANG !!! ...... the E3 plug is the only plug I'll be runn'in in the Grizz or the Jeep.

I'd put them in my truck, but I have 429 heads on my 460, & as of yet, they don't make the size plug I need for those heads .....

And THAT'S my story & I'm stick'in to it !!!!

Later ....

Guess I will have to try the E3, Gunny. The iridium made a pretty good difference...can't wait to see the E3.
