    theyre just spark plugs its not like your going to get 1 hp for every spark plug you have.

    Maybe if u upgrade cables and plugs and much more, you might feel a slight difference

    e3 sparkplugs are bs

    regular bosch are good.

    usually they only tell you that so you'll buy another set of plugs. the only thing the bosh plugs usually don't do well in are the smaller GM cars, they runn hotter because of having those plugs in it. there's a bunch of people I have seen on here that love those plugs in the GM trucks. they run them and never have a problem with them.

    If you are running the factory radio, you may just need another better ground on it. You shouldn't be getting any radio noise because of plugs. might also look at putting in some more gound wires , you can never have enough of those.

    So you would recommend the E3 pugs? Did you upgrade anything else on the ignition or just upped the plugs?
