Motorcraft also has cheap plugs. I paid $30 for all 6 of mine. When I had a chevy AC Delco plugs were $8 a piece.

i think it was said before but them "E3 diamond fire" jobs are total junk. they dont help your power or efficiency at all and they DO NOT make the spark any bigger. its a gimmick. if you take one out and watch it spark all the spark does is jump around all over the place.

if you want better spark, you need a hotter coil. period.

Just a little note - Autolite makes Motorcraft spark plugs, but, motorcraft iridium plugs typically have a smaller electrode tip making a "larger" spark hence slightly better performance but also shortening the life of the plug.

Wow that's an insane plug I'd send that back to the company ask them what they thought would make that happen. I can't think of anything that would destroy burn the center of the plug without taking the electrode with it.

all i can think is the insulators melted around it that keep it from grounding to the block and the contact point dropped down past the side of the electrode.
