Hey 73mach1, respectable times for a 5500 lb sled! The Roush plugs, 112 hp! WOW!! You gotta post your dyno results asap. Not trying to jerk your chain, BUT thats a lotta ponies for plugs! Where do I find the info on them? As you can see by my sig, I like h.p.

Spark plugs that add 112hp?

Must've been a typo.

73mach1, What's the site for these "PLUGS"? I have to admit I agree with Gary42141, Thats just a awful lot of ponies. Roush is no wannabe in the performance world,But! what do they have to back up these kind of H.P. gains? That's more than 2/3 of the gain you would get from bolting on a supercharger! Really not knocking Roush claims but unless these plugs cost nearly as much as a blower I would think Roush just shot himself in the foot, from a marketing standpoint anyway, IMHO.

I also want the Roush plugs. Even if I could get just four of them I would take 56 HP. These plugs are going to sell like hot cakes. I want to be first in line for them in order to get 112 HP. Where do I order them? Who do I give my money to? I am waiting patiently. Thanks!

My guess at 112 would be one big plug ... that plugs onto the top! A huffer plug.

Better go back and look at their website, they are claiming 112HP from their Roush supercharger not a set of sparkplugs!

Just installed my new Roush plugs and Holy Moly! My quarter mile time dropped 5.4 seconds all the way down to 11.0 seconds flat. Those plugs kick some serious butt. Easily added 112 hp. Just kidding.

Even a 12HP gain from plugs would be impressive.

No way, that would mess with my crystal pyramid that I keep there for more mileage.

73mach1. And here I was trying to be polite and not tell you that you were drinking your bath water if you thought plugs would produce that kind of h.p! So much for being a "nice guy". Are you installing the Supercharger? I'm considering such an upgrade, I have installed the T.R.D. units on a couple Toyota's with no problem whatsoever and may consider doing the same on my 5.4. Does Roush do anything to the trans logic to go along with the Supercharger?
