I'm not talking about working like they are suppose too.  I'm talking a
significant difference that continues to improve up to the first 1000
miles and then they level off because they reach there max. efficiency.
I know there are a lot of experts out here on this list.  But , I
learned a long time ago, if it works well for you don't change because
others say it shouldn't.  Don't want to offend anyone,  but unless you
try these particular plugs,  You can't have a perspective on them.
