Default Changing And Upgrading Hi Perfomance Spark Plugs

Hi guys,



A buddy of mine has a big beast of an escalade truck... Around 60k miles. He notice his acceleration was laggy and his gas mileage complete shit.


He told me a brand named E3 high performance spark plugs were installed in his car and and he noticed a HUGE difference in attentiveness in the accelerator and his gas mileage vastly improved.


Two things:
A) How hard is it and how do I change the spark plugs on a 6.5 gen Max.
B) he mentioned this "triangular" spark design method which sparks early and actually improves efficiency. Is any of this true?

Answer to B) is that I doubt the Triangle design gives any improvement over the standard designs. Since some come with a single bridge and others have 4.

As for the early spark we're talking nanoseconds here since it constantly sparks. Sounds like a gimmick.
Also if you were to put these into a corolla etc with low RPM it'll do more damage than good.
Maximas suggest higher octane fuel for performance.

Higher octane does NOT only mean cleaner fuel. Higher octane means higher rate of detonation.
Thats why we get engine knocks and sluggish performance when we use 87octane, and race cars user 100-117 octane for a higher rate of combustion.

Remember for performance its not about how big the spark is but rather more importantly how big the combustion is as well as how many times you can make it combust.

Hope this answers your question.
