Just want to know if anyone has tried E3 plugs and are they anygood?
No, but no. They're chinese.
:rofl: It wasn't intended as a smack against Chinese culture itself, but rather their current government, militarism, complete lack of respect for human rights, religious intolerance, etc. Just look at Tibet, and what they do to Christians.watch it... theres good chinese and bad chinese
No, but no. They're chinese
You cant gap them. not what our trucks were designed to use.
Stick with autolite or motorcraft copper cores or double platinums
i HAVE installed these garbage plugs before, at a customers request. One car, a 4.6 f150 misfired like crazy, the other one, a ford tarus, appeared to run ok.Also E3 has a satisfaction gurantee, so you have nothing to loose, plus an outstanding warranty.
i would love to see someone actually use the plugs and provide real data, vrs the typical response that you see in these threads;
Tells you how much you know about car's electronics & ignition systems. The Multiple paths, give you a bigger spark front. The same ideal exists on the splitfire with the V center-electrode.i HAVE installed these garbage plugs before, at a customers request.

SO i guess a 50% success rate is acceptable? :twak
how can the design of these things make sense? Ungappable, so you are probably stressing the coil more than you should. Electricity always follows the easiest path to ground, so what good are 3 ground electrodes doing, its only going to spark to one. And with the e3's its almost making a cage for the spark so if its aimed down in the plug hole its probably hurting performance. Its design is pointless in an engine like the 4.6 where the plugs screw in from the top.

Do you light candles on a birthday cake with a plasma torch?Tells you how much you know about car's electronics & ignition systems. The Multiple paths, give you a bigger spark front.

Have you seen how much of the spark face is obstructed by all these points? It's practically a freaking blast shield over the spark surface.Second, in a regular plugs the ground electrode actually shields the flame front, and thats means to reduce fire and heat into the mixture. The heat is what really startes the combustion process. A unrestricted plug does this so much better. Racers are known to unshroud the plug tip to take advanatge of this and by indexing the plug, they can direct this new front to better areas or ignition improvements.
So, a car with e3's misfiring is going to dyno better than a car not misfiring with the factory plugs?So all you have are comments as posted in this thread with no real data or comparisons information to back it all up. I would love to see dyno comparisons and real life long term driving data logging with these plugs vrs the others. They with all of the data showns, you can now make a fair comparisons, other than "it's junk " with no supporting information.
:rofl:Hey, lets shroud the spark, that'll help make more power!!!
Get you a set of E6 "Fast Burn Heads" with shrouded valves and the combo should be unstoppable!!
since you mention champion, care to have him input. Champion never went with anything fancy with multiple side electrodes, but they have made changes in side electrode shapes and width and how much shroud the center electrode. Outside of that changing the center electrode , the champion plug has not changed over the last 100yeras.My dad is having a good laugh at this thread. He was an engineer at Champion for 18 years, before Cooper bought them out.
One thing no one has mentioned is the electrode configuration and its effect upon required ionization voltage...but I suppose that's a little beyond this thread.
