In NO post, NO post does anyone mention better MPG's, so whoever is hung up on that, please put it to rest. The use of AR 103's is for a better idle and a couple HP gain. Thats it. I thought my car had a bad motor mount because the vibrations, I installed AR103's gapped at .050 and its very smooth, has been for 15K and since it cost me $12, they will be replaced with the next oil change.
It's actually mentioned several times in this thread:

The Duratec Sparkplug Sticky

Hence my interest. Another oddball thing I noticed; I used to run Denso Platinum Twin Tips in a 93 Corolla... great plugs but after the first 20k you needed to regap them. I noticed that their P/N for this car is equal to Autolite 105/106. Odd that it would sold as a direct replacement if it's equal to a different Autolite heat range; not going near those at any rate haven't heard any nice things about them in this car.
