Spark Plugs

I look at a show call MOTORZ.TV they did a special on spark plugs. They talk about the E3 spark plug and how it has been tested and showed how good they work and how much better they are. Has anyone use these on their car and if so can you tell us if their is a difference, thanks.

^ You have got to be joking right? I remember the split fire craze in the 90's when I was a kid. And Slick 50... running vipers on the track with no oil. Right. Run your OEM Bosch plug or a NGK/Denso. I need to get into the car snake oil business.

I know I just posted a question about spark plugs myself, but I would be very very wary of any claims of increased performance from a spark plug. The best that you can hope for is an incremental increase in spark intensity or reliability (although increases in intensity usually come at the expense of coil longevity - usually ignition upgrades need to be done as a system, with stock-like plugs but with a wider gap, and beefier coil(s), and OEM plugs under stock conditions have to produce a very reliable spark to meet emissions standards) or longer life. If a manufacturer claims anything more than that, then IMHO it's a fair bet that the manufacturer is sellin' snake oil.

Thanks for the feed back guys, yeah i did more researching on this from other cars and i got a lot of bad info on this also but the show seems to be a good show but they do work on rebuilding most of the cars that are on their show, thanks again.
