    yea a friend of mine had an auto del sol si, for the life of me i could not get it over 100mph, no matter the stretch, intake... fpr, nothing, slapped in some fucking denso iridium plugs, BAM i shut the thing down at 121mph, i was sold! and a friend of mine with an LS says that they are the only plugs he has ever felt a gain with, im impressed with them, now if i can get them for cheaper than 18.50 a plug, they'd be in my car lol

    Not one of their test cars was NA. So all that the test says is these plugs are good for boosted cars.

    lol there is 1 dyno in my area... i know the difference between not being able to go over 100, changing the plugs and flying past 100... i was the one that changed them lol... it worked, plain and simple.

    I am sure there is an improvement when you use these plugs in an NA car, but I don't think that the improvement is worth spending $40 on a set of plugs instead of $6 (for me anyway). I am not trying to say that these plugs don't work, I am trying to decide if I think they are a worthwhile investment for my car.

    It might have just been your old plugs were worn away.
