e3 sparkplugs a good plug to buy?

Am going to upgrade to a better wire the granetteli zero impedance wires, and have done some digging and the E3-54 plugs seem to be a good idea to try on my Camaro to get the flame front larger and more completely combust the fuel. Anyone have experience with them? I am most likely going to try them no matter what anyway...lol because they are sure to out perform the stock plugs, and phastek sells them amongst others, I searched on summit and jegs and they do not have exactly the same numbers or that they match... but hey theres a lot of discrepancies amongst just parts houses having the right info, but I trust phastek except their price on the plugs at 5.95 each does not match the 5.95 eachx8= 59.oo...lol though the granetteli wires are cheaper there than at granetteli........

I tried E3 Spark Plugs back in 2002 on my SS Camaro and in 2004 on a Tahoe. Both times, I had mis-fires on certain cylinders that would cause both vehicles to surge when trying to accelerate and throw codes. After the dealership diagnosed which cylinders were mis-firing, I removed and replaced the spark plugs and never had a problem again.

So, not only did I try them once, but I tried them twice. Same results both times. Not sure why you're asking for advice when you seem set in your ways.....?! Good luck nonetheless. Hopefully they've improved in the last decade.

still am thinking of going with a better wire even after reading the snake oil thread, think I should do some more reading on tests if there are any of the wires by other than granetteli...... BTW just joined the 500 rwhp club most likely, just added a vmax throttle body to my already 491 rwhp car via mustang dyno, next is a fluidampr 25% underdrive, then going back to building up on the rear for next tax seasons return for a 3.91 and eaton posi install along with all the poly bushings I have left to go in and the lpw cover.

Not sure how it is now, but back in days that I owned a Saturn S-Series, the AC Delco plugs that were specified for it were made by NGK. Owners would buy the NGK's because they cost less and were the exact same part.
