I know this topic is baten to death on here, but most of what I found were plugs like split fire and things like that. My question is about these E3 plugs. Anybody used them? Any gains? Good? Bad? Thought they had a design like nothing else and wondered how they worked. Sorry if I just kicked a hornets nest.

I use single point Bosch Platinum's in ALL of my Jeeps, and in my S-10's Iron Duke motor. My friend turned me on to Bosch plugs. He had a set in his CJ-5 that lasted about 5 years. Every time he did a tune up they had little wear/deposits, so they got cleaned and re-installed. Jeeps use Bosch fuel injection parts,..so Bosch Fuel Injection+Bosch Plugs=Good? I think so....

AC-Delco plugs are my second choice. They always work, never had a lick of trouble with them. They're cheap too.

I can't stand Champion plugs. I lost count of all the Champion plugs that were junk right out of the box. Some people swear by them, not me Laugh

For me it's the exact opposite. I only run Champion Truck plugs and have never had any issues. I swear by them! They are the longest lasting, best performers! I've tried many brands through the years and bosch and ac are at the bottom of my list. They've never lasted long and never satisfied me, even when new. I have a few Jeeps and they all love the Champions. I really "use" my rigs and only one brand has held up. I've converted many people from the other plugs and all have been and still are extremely happy. I'm talking Truck Plugs, not the white Champs, although they are still better than others IMO.





"Champion Truck PlugTM was designed specifically for pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles. Features include a black glazed, zirconia-enhanced ceramic insulator which offers 40% more strength than other spark plugs. This provides durability under rough driving conditions. The massive copper cored it center and ground electrodes are 20% larger than ordinary spark plugs. This design allows the plug to thrive in the rough environments of trucks and sport utility vehicles. Tests have shown substantial increase in electrode life over standard designs in truck engines. The plug carries a threeyears/unlimited mileage warranty. When you want a no-compromise spark plug for a truck or sport utility vehicle, Champion Truck Plug is the only choice."

I have always stuck with autolite's. Tried champs and wasn't impressed, same with Bosch.

Here's what i believe in

AC-Delco - GM
Mororcraft - Ford
Champion - Chrysler/Jeep
NGK - Saabs & Jap cars
Bosh - good for most cars but still just gotta guess and check

Thats what those vehicles come from the factory with, that's what they're designed to run with.
