    I've heard people have issues running them as well. I bet the most difference people notice is from having new plugs period, not special ones.

    I ran them in my Sierra before I sold it. Ran just fine with them.

    I think there is a lot of truth in that statement.

    Do they even make a difference in small engines like ATV's?

    I wouldn't think so. They say they are designed to do a bunch of crap, but to do most of that, several systems would need to be changed, not just the ignition source. Once you start the fire, not much is gonna change how it burns. They might have better fouling resistance, and are less likely to not produce a spark, but other than that, I don't see any real benefit.

    I agree. I was considering them but just about every one thinks the same way I do about them.

    Do you get better throttle response and fuel mileage?



    Sorry, I had to...
