Default New Plugs

Ok, after running a boat in the ocean (moons ago) for 12 years with twin motors, I really didn't think expensive plugs ever would make a difference. So, this weekend for kicks I installed NGK GR51X plugs in my big block (Camino) and for the $6 a pop, heck I may change them every year. Starts a little easier, runs a ton better and smoother, do I dare say I picked up some HP? Yep, I did. The Delco's I had in er weren't old so I'm not sure why I'm in a better place now : )
Was actually gonna try the E3 plugs but glad I went with the NGK.

Just wanted to share my two cents

That's cool, I'm considering new plugs for my 350.

Well I'm sure a lot of folks would say plugs won't make a difference. But at least they did for me. I had added Taylor wires a few months ago.
