PostSubject: E3 Spark Plugs   9/30/2009, 11:31 pm

Went to O'Reilly's today to get some Sea Foam and while I was there got to chatting with the guy behind the counter. Long story short, he showed me these new spark plugs that are out and supposedly better than anything out there. They have dyno tests proving a 10 horsepower increase over a stock LS1 and then a video on their website showing a 5.7 horsepower increase over another premium spark plug. I'm going to give it a shot. I figure it's worth a shot at least. They run about $5.75 a piece so they'll be about $45. Worth a shot in my opinion.

I saw something on Horsepower TV about these. They showed to have a small power gain and even an MPG gain. I would definitely give it a shot on the 5.7L with a dyno available. I don't think the butt dyno will feel this performance mod.

I paid about $50 for the set of 8. I figure that's a not too much to at least give them a shot. I'll let yall know what I find.
