take the e3s back and get ngk iridiums. change your fuel filter and pour in a bottle of seafom(in the gas tank). you will notice a little boost in performance.

Not sure about the spark plugs but seafoam works wonders.

A certain 06 F150 is running around with my old Procharger.. it ate those e3's REALLY quick. Stock lightning plugs worked best

NGK makes good plugs.

You better use the seafoam before you put on a new exhaust. It does clean the engine but the result is a buildup of a camel-snot like substance in your exhaust.
