cwm6Any one try the new E3 spark plugs yet?
Combine these with the electric supercharger & air foil and you'd have at least 52 million HP.If you combined the E3 plugs with a Tornado air management device, I'd say you would get a performance boost on par with an entire fender's worth of manufacturer's decals.
yes I have two names actually. i remember these two guys becuase they work with me still. One guys name is eric. He had an late 90's Ford Expedition that he installed the tornado on and he said it worked. He never actually told me how well it worked as in it gave him better fuel economy or more hp. The other guy is my supervisor named Johnny. He has an 95 SS impala. He keeps telling me I need to buy one and use it. I already have the K&N intake though. But when you think about it he is the same guy that used an ebay chip on his car and had to rebuild his tranny. Gave him some power but he paid for it.May I have a list of these people's names? I've got some miracle tonic and real estate they might be interested in.

i dont think e3 plugs were available in the LT1 era. Also every car has flaws. If GM would put more time into these vehicles they would be pretty much perfect. No window sag is a good example. Every car has flaws in its DNA. these car companies are to busy tring to push out newer vehicles quantity is now more important than quailty. And NO gm wont put them in every car even if it worked. Intake systems are proven to work better than factory systems why arnt they being installed from the factory. Anything the dealer does for a car the aftermarket industry will make it better.I asked a knowledgeable GM engineer the same question. His response was " GM spends millions of dollars in research to get better fuel economy. Don't you think if these worked GM would spent the extra dollars to put them in every car?"
You can geuss all you wish, but first it needs to be established how or why those plugs are supposed to be superior, based on the mfr. claim of course. Without an established claim how would you know what test to conduct?Geuss ill be the test subject then.
As for spending the minimal $$$ and effort to R & R the plugs as Marky suggested, well, that is the LEAST of the problem.The reason why products like this get a bad rep is because it's a pain in the @$$ to compare new-to-new. If changing eight spark plugs was as easy as changing eight airfilters, new spark plugs would be compared to new spark plugs much more often, and consumers would quickly learn what's worth what.
Well screw it i'll stick with regular plugs for now until i run into more people who have used it and get the info from them.You can geuss all you wish, but first it needs to be established how or why those plugs are supposed to be superior, based on the mfr. claim of course.

Maybe I've seen a different advertisement than you, but if not, it is very highly unlikely you could afford or be willing
to spend the $$$ to conduct the test(s).

Conducting the tests is where the effort starts.
Don't any of you do any research?
After 10 minutes of searching, I found:
1. There doesn't seem to be any existence of an EPA report on E3 spark plugs. See if you can find one, and if so, post up the link.
2. If you read up on spark plug theory, you will find that sharp edges do help arc performance. E3 plugs offer a much longer sharp edge (or 4 of them, to be specific) on the ground electrode, so in theory they should last longer. If you have seen regular plugs after 40-50k (or AC Delco platinums after the pucks fall off), you'll see that there's no sharp edges left if you look closely.
3. As always, new parts will ALWAYS run better than old parts. If you really want to compare, you must use new part A against new part B.
