just run the BR9EYA's. I seriously don't believe that you could ever get a noticable change in power with spark plugs.

I run the EIX. No noticable change. They say they have longer life, improve gas milage, power and acceleration, blaa blaa blaa. . . I never did any before and after crap. So I can't really vouch for them. I run them because either way they are a better plug and I get them for the same price you guys pay for the EYA's because I work for a motorsports store.

Sno-Show in August @ Nelsons speed Shop in Greenville, mi had to buy a box to get that price, it's been a few years and my new sled has four of them so I will pick up another box this year.
