E3 Spark Plugs
« on: February 06, 2018, 08:16:08 PM »
Has anyone tried E3 spark plugs in the Tex?  It appears that the specs for the E3.38 match the stock NGK CR8EK

I used one in a weedeater, wouldn't run afterwards so I put the original back in. That's my only experience with them. I'd just stick with oem, if a gimmick plug offered any real benefits OEM's would be using them.

E3 spark plugs are commonly used here as generic replacements for lawn mowers. I don't think that I would try them in high compression, high RPM, high-temperature applications.

Hmm, I guess I was thinking of the same plugs that are used in NHRA and NASCAR to name just 2 racing apps.  I wasn't aware they were the same hi performance plugs used in lawn mowers.  I guess I'll stick with OEM  - just thought that there might be a better option.

If you're doing your own servicing, look in to the price of the service kit. It includes things like filters, gaskets and plugs and is sufficiently discounted compared to buying individual components that it may not be worth getting non-standard plugs.
