    Its time to change the sprk plugs on the truck and was wondering if anyone has used the E3 Spark plugs. I've always been a believer of sticking to O.E. parts, but I really like this concept. Thanks for the help.

    its a gimmick they still only have 1 spark. their supposed to last longer because when 1 of the tangs goes bad it has 2 more but by that time the electrode is usually shot

    go w/ the delco's

    Ive always usedBosch Platinum 4's and they work great but ive always heard that for vortecs, ac delco's are the only way to go. Is this true? Should i stick with my bosch's or go to delco's?

    I have nothing but bad experiences with Bosch spark plugs. I have techs in the shop that refuse to install them. The E-3 looked apealing, but I'm sticking to A/C Delco. Thanks for the input guys.

    NGK and Bosch are great for rice burners and foreign jobs, but I have had too many people bring there vehicles back because of miss fire codes in the computers from NGK/Bosch plugs. I won't put anything other than OEM plugs in vehicles at the shop. Warranty work cost too much and too much of a hastle to exchange plugs. GM=AC Delco!

    i tried bosch platinum 4 plugs in my rhd crx and i actually lost performance and fuel economy(bigtime i swear it thought it was a v8 instead of a 4cyl for how much fuel it used) also it kept popping off my leads right off the plugs and my check engine light came on a week later

    your 95 doesnt have the vortec so whatever you prefer but yes the vortec motors are extremely picky about what gives them a spark, stick with the OE
