search dude. 95% of the ppl on here are gonna tell you this. Dont waste your time or money with iridiums, bosch period. AC delco or standard NGK plugs work the best. I run NGK and prefer them a little over the delco's. Most people will tell you they had bad luck w/ anything else. i had bosch plantnium 2's and i took them back. My truck ran like shit w/ them in.

Re: best spark plugs..

yeah go with the delcos or the ngk's, bosch's are fine the first few thousand miles then they go to hell.

No, see i would drink "notwanttobuyuglytruckade" if id did not want to buy it. But I do want to buy it. So i'll have some "wanttobuyuglytruckthat'sactuallyfriggin'sweet aide " ...with ice... Thank you.

Re: best spark plugs..

I am running the delco rapid fires. Truck runs good and has great mileage. I try to go for factory on stuff like that. If the engineer that designed the eng, also had something to do with the plug.

My thought is if the factory used them than they must have performed the best for that engine. some plugs hurt MPG and don't last as long due to wrong heat range.

Re: best spark plugs..

i put some denso iridiums in my truck about 6 months ago and noticed no difference at all. I wont waste that kinda of money again. I ran delco's before the iridiums.

Re: best spark plugs..

i have densos and i noticed a difference - slight, but a difference nonetheless.
i've been curious to try the E3 plugs though. i put one in a single cylinder ohv engine and it started much easier than with the previous plug (champion platinum)

'Isn't that politically incorrect?'
'Well, maybe, but no one's gonna tell me who I can and can't work with!'"

Re: best spark plugs..

Champions and NGKs dont really go well with "Amercian Made Cars"...well at least NGK's dont they work better in Japanese cars b/c they are a japanese plug....from what ive seen and heard. Just a thought!

Re: best spark plugs..

Same here, my dad uses delco just about on everything...thats probably part of the reason why i use them, anything that u can get thats made by ac-delco or gates thats made in america use..b/c from hearing other peoples experience of a replacement part they put on their truck thats made in a 3 world country or some shit always seems to fail...! I try to use only shit thats made in america b/c it seems to perform better and last longer!

Re: best spark plugs..

That's funny, Japanese plugs work best in Japanese cars. Please explain the SCIENCE in that theory. A good plug is a good plug. The materials and the engineering are what makes the plug good or bad. I put the NGK iridiums in my dime and could not be happier. In 22 years I've used a lot of plugs. Like the delcos too.

BTW - I'm tired of hearing how certain parts are engineered for certain vehicles. These trucks were engineered to be a low cost, reliable truck. Most vehicles start as one thing and parts are literally just swapped in and out as the engineers find out what works best, how it effects cost, etc., etc.

Case in point: who has swapped out their mechanical fan for an efan?

Re: best spark plugs..

Have an 03 2.2 w/80,000 and the owners manual says use AC. The part number translates to an Iridium plug number. Thats what I used.

Re: best spark plugs..

thats odd i have an '02 and a '03 manuel, and they both call for the AC Delco 41-948. the platinums.

http://store.summitracing.com/partde...art=acf-41-948

what i always ask people is "how long did your stock plugs last?" and most say something along the lines of "110,000 miles" (etc) and i say "why would you waste your time with anything else?" lol

Re: best spark plugs..

Denso Iridums made my 4.3 the absolute smoothest 6 cylinder I've EVER driven. Put em in my bikes as well. I'll swear that engine vibrations are reduced also.

Re: best spark plugs..

ac delcos in all 3 of my vehicles. when i went to test drive my 98 i notice a roughness at idle i told them they needed to fix that before i bought the truck. i went back a week later they said the spark in it were champions and they switched them to delcos and boom it was smooth.

Re: best spark plugs..

anytime anyone asks me i always tell em ngks, im a bmw tech and bmw runs them, they are our oem plug, so if thats any indication of what plug to use..lol, i have an s10 and have been running the ngk for couple years and no problems at all, for all you asking about the E3 plugs, DO NOT BUY THESE PLUGS, they cause problems, and there special designed tip has proven to ruin pistons due to the tip becoming hotter then normal plugs and burning holes in pistons and not firing as they should, stick with delcos or ngk but imo ngks all the way!
