Yeah they work, but they aren't going to be replacing my iridium IX anytime soon.

They ran fine in my Honda Accord, but they didn't last in my Saturn. Twice they failed and fouled out one, maybe it is the "Waste Spark" that GM uses? It runs great with what came stock, not really any difference of FE in either vehicle. I used the original Pulstar's (the copper core ones). I am sticking to OEM for now.

I tried them, but they're too cold of a heat range and fouled up fast, so I returned them for a refund. Called the company, and they ended up sending me a set of old copper ones for free to try. Those lasted a little longer, but still fouled up quick, and one of them broke.

I had a set in my 03 Civic and they fouled out after about 25k miles, and caused a misfire, by the time I got my car home the rings were fried. Kind of my fault for driving on them, and not checking the gap, but I am younger and learn from my mistakes. I am still working on getting a motor, and hopefully a manual trans swap to replace the bad motor in the car. It is bad when your car burns a quart of oil ever 150 miles and hits 160-80-60-80 for compression results. Who knows maybe it will just be a headgasket when I tear into it?

Hi
check to see if there's an owners website for your vehicle spark plugs and iginition wire questions come up all the time. there is no one fits all solution. european cars do best on bosch or ngk plugs. janpanese cars do best on denso. iginition wires are even more varied. according to owners website for my japanese truck denso spark plugs and oem leads are best combintion.
