But it was iridium and u was told to never adjust them it they might brake.

mostly you dont want to bend the center electrode when they are a fine wire just adjust the side ground. if you want an improvement open them up to about .045 or .050 gap but youll have to check them every year or 2

I didn't modify the engine at all. What do you think it could be?

So young, so...............gullible.

There is nothing wrong there other than the E3 plug which is utter garbage. I used to sell them...................and then take them back when they ran like crap. Over, and over, and over, an................

There are pre-gapped plugs BUT, are they pre-gapped for YOUR application????

Commonly no, and where on earth do you people get the idea that a plug will be gapped for your particular engine????

It's stupid.

They pre-gap ONLY in one gap width and to the most common applications of the plug ONLY, all the others that do not use that gap MUST be gapped to your needed number.

You ALWAYS check the gap of EVERY plug, you have no idea of how many of them have been dropped on floor to alter it.

Other then the weird stuff, the plugs looked fine...I have experimented with splitfire and many other brands...oem ran best or brands like NGK, Denso and a few others mostly for colder range plugs
