has anybody used the new e3 plugs yet?
nope ... all most all of hemi owners use the slandered OEM champion copper plugs .
stay away from plat plugs , 85% of people experience problems with them .
stick with OEM champions . cheap and work ...hemi needs copper as this engine runs hot .
and keep in mind every 30k on plugs .
welcome to the forum
thx for the welcome i was also looking at bosh+4 plugs but this is my first dodge 2006 5.7 4x4 so i dont know much about the hemi but want to add lots of mods only for better gas mileage haha!
like i said , stick with the OEM champions COPPER .
do the plug change all 16 , clean the TB and check the EGR , switch the oil over to synthetic 5.5 QUARTS , get rid of the hemi hat and get a good breathable CAI with a good non restrictive exhaust , and possibly a tunner down the road .
that will help with MPG'S
AND DEPENDING ON THE MILES .... diff service and trans .
nothing runs better than a well serviced truck
two separate auto stores recommended platinum plugs for replacement, just goes to show who has your truck in mind when it comes to maintenance. The stores want the bottom line almighty dollar, to hell withh your ride, not so here. An exhaust system, preferably a cat back system will increase horsepoweer, and mpg's btw. T^hat aside go with the copper jobs, they work the best.
RH the new hemis take only 5.5 quarts of oil in em? Mine is 7.5 along with the other 05 at the house.
my bad i was thinknig about the nitro ...lol
yes def. stick with the stock champions, and that will save you money toward mods. If you are going for mods to increase mpg also look into an e-fan.
Your all good RH just trying to figure out what the hell they changed to lose 2 quarts lol.
bought and installed new champ copper plugs only 50$ compared to 150$
trying to fix a slight eng shake at idle, only 60000 km
