I hear what you are saying, but if they are good as the site says they are (which usually isn't the case lol) they might be worth it for a little better gas mileage and a small boost in hp and torque.

If those plugs and Nology wires worked as good as the sites say they do in theory.... you could blow holes through your pistons with the MASSIVE electrical discharge LOL

Wouldn't there be a delay in spark as the "pulse circuit" is charged?

And am I looking at the diagrams right? They're saying these plugs cause an increase in cylinder pressure at teh expansion stroke.

Just placed an order with CFM for plugs, wire set, and MSD coil.

I have been having some hesitation / bucking issues and just found that the previous owner installed Ractive plug wires. (yuck!)

Installed everything today. It definitely made a difference. I think the wires were my biggest issue. Car runs smoother and doesn't have the miss anymore that it had recently developed. Now if I can just save enough $$ for a tune. :)

DO NOT WIGGLE THE TOOL IN BETWEEN THE PLUG! You will have a good chance of ruining the plug, theirs a hole on the gapper and what you want to do is to use that to gao it bigger. Especially with iridium plugs you can rub of the coating and basiacally be back to a platinum coating (some of the companies put on a coating rather than full iridium)

I'm hoping he had the wrong part and that wasn't the actual price but then again they also wanted to charge me $70+ for a TPS sensor.

I called CFM and added both of them both to my pending order.
I used to work at the dealership and at one time was running nitrous, and I went in told them I wanted the AZFS22C (one step colder) which is stock for a SVT (comes with 1 step colder over normal 2.0 up to 2004) they may need to order them but shouldnt have a problem ordering them, they just don't have a clue. I paid $1 a piece, but shouldnt cost more than $3 for anyone off the street.

I bought Iridium plugs, they say not to gap them on the set I bought (which I work on cars and can be careful enough to gap it) but the question is they come set @ .050 which isnt bad, but I have the screamin demon coil pack and live wires, which I thought plugs need gapped @ .065, what should I set them to?
