Brisk spark plugs for 3v engine

http://www.steeda.com/products/brisk...ugs_silver.php

Don't know the heat range yet (I do know they have them for colder rangers for my blower, but haven't checked stock range yet). These are conventional design plugs for our engines instead of the current 2 piece design (prone to breakage) and they also use a standard gap instead of the loop. If you've ever gapped HT0, HT1 or HT2 plugs, you know how much of a pain they are!

Anyone tried them?

Ken I looked at the plug. Pretty neat! I just bought the ford racing plugs for mine for 20.00 each and these 17.00 I wonder who the co. is behind them? I didnt look that far. And also I looked at the plug real hard and I cant be for certain that it is indeed a one piece.. Look real close where the shell meets the plug looks like it could be a seam there... not real sure i would love to see one up close. could definately be the plug us 5.4 owners are looking for!! thanks for the info Ken ..

Good find Ken. My truck is bone stock, so I have no need for the colder heat range plugs. If they were available for the stock engine, I'd almost be tempted to buy a set now.

I did some reading on them. They are 1 piece. Only draw-back is they are 20K mile plugs, not 100K plugs. I'm willing to live with changing plugs every 20K if it means I don't have to worry about them breaking off in the head.

Ditto. I noticed the part # 3VR17YS plug is recommended for up to 450-HP. Maybe that is the most similar plug to the stock Motorcraft.

Tried the Brisk Plugs on my 03 Cobra 4V...dyno'd before and after...no change...not worth the price IMHO

I'm not concerned with dyno results. I'm concerned with two things:

1. Fouling. HT0's tend to foul.
2. 1 piece design so you don't end up with a broken plug in the head.

As to price, they cost less than HT0s.

firstonraceday...yep, got me! But I did see the long-reach plugs (5.4 3v Triton app) on another site. Too bad they're only 20k plugs though. The design is what is needed...one piece. Bring on the platinums!

The latest TSB from Ford was the break them loose 1/8 turn, then use Motorcraft carburetor cleaner to soak. But the shroud can still break loose and stick in the head. I have been seeing a lot of posts on different sites from people using a 3/8" impact wrench with success. Probably the route I'll take shortly. My 2005 has 54,000 miles on it and I want to change them before to many more miles roll up.

One thing that I think does make a difference is to use quality (Tier 1) gasoline. I have used Chevron more often than not. I will also burn a couple of tanks with additional Techron concentrate prior to attempting the change.
