Question Anyone use E3 diamond fire plugs in a V10?

After seeing a TV show that did a motor dyno run comparing standard plugs and E3s, I'm thinking about trying them in my V10.
The E3s made more horsepower and had a little less fuel consumption.
Has anyone tried them in your V10?
Thanks
Scott

I use them on my 4.7 and I noticed a slight differance I also use royal purple lubs in all areas. I found that it keeps everything cooler and in turn will make everything run better its just expensive to switch everything over at one time. Biggest differance was the transmission. I noticed better and smoother shifting all the way through. The E3's Work much better than my previous plugs Bosch Platinums. After I resolve my rear end issues I was think about droppin a MSD in and seeing how that would help but I was told it may disrupt my sound system.

i havent installed them yet but after seeing the dyno proof and everywhere you look they do claim a signifigant hp increase i dont see how it could hurt trying them out. maybe you could be the first to provide the info to the next owner who comes along with the same question.if you do try them please let us know what kind of gains you get =)

I put them in my 5.9. Didn't really notice any change, and I also replace the cap, rotor, and installed 8mm wires. Nothing looked bad, it was just time to service them.

DO NOT PUT THOSE PLUGS IN YOUR V10!!! they are known to cause MAJOR problems. i had a v10 come into the shop i was working at. the owner was running them. they came apart in his motor the tips are way brittle and they fowl easy. screwed the engine. funny thing is he got them put in at the DEALER.

i highly recomend running the irridium plugs. found below.

In general Dodge don't do well with these plugs especially with the Hemi, it don't like them at all.
