Talking plugs

wondering what plugs everyone is running, i had champions in my truck, and it ran good, but not really good.

i just switched to autolite 5224 i believe, truck starts up really fast and idles alot better


wondering what everybody is running and if they noticed any power/fuel mileage increase or decrease?

Nothing goes in my vehicles but NGK plugs. I figured if they can handle a 600hp nitrous fed motor they can handle the good old Ram

dont remember where i saw it now but there is a dyno test with bosch platinums vs autolite copper 3923 and the autolite won out. I have used both and there is a bit faster start to the autolites plus they are cheaper

I'm runnings Champion copper core and they seem pretty good. I've heard lots of positives about NGK so I plan to try those next.
