Don't expect any performance increase from higher temp plugs, let alone 12%(that's BS). They DO NOT add HPs, they only have a more efficient burn in the chamber, which may result in a few HPs, ubt most common is a cleaner cylinder for longevity of the motor.

As for underdrive pulleys, documented off of a 2006 5.7L HEMI, a 20% underdrive pulley added 8HP and 7.5ft-lbs of torque; so claims of 24% is utterly unrealistic.
