i beg to differ.A spark plug has a pretty simple job to do.
again, i beg to differ.In most cases, the cheapest ones you can get do just fine.
it depends. some are designed to provide a better spark. while others are really, as you said: a gimmick.And some of the more "exotic" new designs really aren't worth crap.......except to take away your money.
You can beg to differ all you want but tests have been done.....over and over and over ad. nauseum and the results are:i beg to differ.
will it create a better spark that will help burn the fuel better? YES.
even some of the lowest quality plugs will last around 40,000-60,000 miles. no need to change them before that.
care to post those results/test?You can beg to differ all you want but tests have been done.....over and over and over ad nauseum and the results are:
A spark is a spark. "Better" plugs will last longer but OEM plugs in about everything except lawn mowers anymore are of the "long lasting" type already.
If you really care, do a web search.care to post those results/test?
no arguement at all buddy; we are all here to share/learn/chat.If you really care, do a web search.
Places like Road and Track, Car and Driver, Consumer Reports all have done tests over the years. Once you exceed a certain threshold and make a spark sufficient to ignite the mixture......any extra spark is just wasted, as are any additional costs to produce a "better" spark.
I sense that this could turn into a heated arguement so I'll stop there.
I never said that "all spark plugs are the same".your original claims that all spark-plugs are the same. (which we agree, that not all are)
did you just call a HEMI, a "high performance racing" engine? lololololololol. its the biggest POS if ever seen. total sales gimmick.And there are always exceptions, your example of a high performance "racing" engine being just one. That really has no bearing on our little street engines though.
Or to put it a different way:The factory plugs are just right for the engine,
