E3 vs NGK iridium plugs.

tried seaching to see if there was a thread on this but the search wouldnt work. has anyone compared the two to see if there was a difference in performance? if so what is the verdict? i have been running NKG irids in everything i have ever owned that was a honda with no problems. the guy at oriellys told me the E3s would have a hotter spark and make alittle more power. i am aware that spark plugs alone wont give you more power i have upgraded the rest of my ignition system and im wondering if these plugs are worth a shot.

Re: E3 vs NGK iridium plugs.

Having seen a dyno comparison with OEM spec Honda plugs and NGK Iridiums I'm inclined to say that just changing the plugs won't make a "noticable" difference. The car pulled 105kW at the wheels (98 H22A, 5-spd, CAI, no tune) with the stockers, then half an hour later 108kW with the NGKs.

Since the NGKs are already a great plug, I can't see the E3 being so far superior that you'd get more than a negligable gain. Unless of course the current plugs have had it, in which case they probably aren't firing at their optimum anyway.

Re: E3 vs NGK iridium plugs.

why are we using iridium now?

Having more prongs won't do much for you, you do realize that it can only spark to one prong right/? in otherwords your pays for three extra prongs. we hooked an iridium up to the spark demonstrator and it only sparked to one the whole time...

and arguing the whole "the last longer!!!"
dude you only change them like 50k-100k anyway.....

Re: E3 vs NGK iridium plugs.

my iridiums only have one prong or are you saying the e3s are also iridium. i have upgraded my coil distributer and my wires not just my plugs.
