Default Pulstar Plugs

Has anyone tried these plugs in their HEMI? (With MDS) Curious how this truck would run with them. $10 a plug...

It is recommended that the Hemi use only the OEM plugs. You can check out a bunch of threads on this topic here - http://www.ramforumz.com/search.php?searchid=1101894

Take particular note to the recommendations by RamTech. He has pretty much seen it all when it comes to plugs and Hemis.

Every shop including the dealer has recomended the original copper champion plugs.
I've heard of people changing them for something else (Iridium, platinum, double platinum etc..) and the truck never ran the same..

If you do end up using then, let is know though.. At $10 a pop, thats $160 just for the plugs.. :O

I agree...the stock plugs seem to work best. I have friends with the 5.7L in their LX cars and some of them have tried different kinds of plugs and ended up going back to the stock ones after a very short period of time.
