Agreed.

The only time I saw any difference was on an engine that ran a little rich at idle. The small pointed tip on the Rapid fires kept them from fouling.

I just bought the boat this summer, at some point in the boats life water had leaked onto the plug prob from a leaky riser gasket which caused the plug to rust apart. Not a leak on the inside.

Try running these special plugs the next time you do a tune up.

I heard they are the best!

its not bad to put anti-seize on the threads to aviod the rust from frezzing the plug in the head, but of utmost importance is not to get it on the electrobe of the plug as to come in contact with the combustion. also it helps that some testostrone fill mechanic doesnt over tighten them!!!!
