After watching some dyno #'s from HorsePower TV... I decided to do some research and found this article:

I'm not entirely certain it makes much of a performance difference, but their emissions tests seem to be sound - so at the very least my car is now running cleaner :)

E3 part number for XLR-V 4.4L - "E3.53"

Since they are new sparkplugs; they will seem to make the XLR-V run like new since they plugs are new. You need to wait to see the actual difference; 500 miles should break in the sparkplugs to see if you are either getting better mileage or/an better performance.

Thats probably a very good point.

But in the testing (if you read/watch the links I posted) you'll see that all their testing was done with new plugs.
