    They have ther qualitys i guess but call me old faschioned, i prefer the old school stuff rather than the new WONDER things. A good spark plug then is still a good one today.

    Electricity takes the path of least resistance, maybe once in a while it will jump around between the other electrodes, but I bet you'd usually find it hitting the same a majority of the time. So why not use the plugs that the engine was engineered around to begin with? After all, AC Delco has had a good rep. for making damn good plugs; they're proven to work!

    Are the NGK's actually the OEM plugs for 01' and 02'? According to Haynes manuals this is what they call for....any chance they got it wrong? I think I pulled out AC's from whomever did the previous tune-up, but they must either not know about the Haynes recommendation or just know better from experience. 100% of the guys at the AA parts where shocked to see this information in the Haynes manual regarding NGK's for a big American V8, vs. an import.

    Just was watching Stacy David's Gears and he actually did a electric test and you could clearly see the electricity going to all the points on the diamond shaped end of the E3, he also showed it sparking in a combustion chamber, they look great hahah but like everyone said they are not wat your vehicle is made to use,

    Also checked with my dealer's part counter and he said they only use AC Delco's in all those years for Tahoe, S10, 1500's etc.
