Default e3's on a 3.0?

Thinking about trying those e3 sparkplugs on my 3.0, anybody else tried that? Any horror stories from e3's? Supposedly adds power, adds fuel economy and reduce emissions, but it sounds too good to be true.

I wouldnt waste my money on those. I would get motorcraft spark plugs.

The "increase in power and MPG" gain you "get" is the exact same you will experience with just simply changing out your old worn out plugs

yeah I looked at the reviews for it, they heat up and fail and cause engine damage, I'll just go with NGK and get all of those aligned to point slightly towards the exhuast valve.

Make sure to get he right NGK plugs

Auto stores have the wrong numbers listed on their computers. Have heard of people having trouble with them because they are to long or to short

I have E3's in my 4 liter, a spark plug is a spark plug. I don't notice a big difference with them.
