Whats your Spark Plugs?

According to Advanced Auto these trucks come with one of the cheapest plugs you can get coming in at $1.99 each (i think some kind of bosch). I've been getting about 15mpg on the highway like it is and im pretty sure that could be a lil better with some decent plugs. i just want performance though, fuel economy isn't my goal with this truck

What kind of plugs are you guys running and how do they perform?

A colder plug can be more beneficial if the plug is causing pre-ignition. With forced induction, you have a higher combustion temperature and your plug can literally end up glowing red hot on the tip and igniting the mixuture before the spark actually fires. The solution is to go with a colder plug. If you go too cold, it will foul too easy and cause missfire. With fuel injection it is less of a problem than it was with carbeureted motors since carbs at times would be way rich and cause the plug to foul.

If you can afford $249.95 for a set of plugs go with Pulstars. They are sold in pairs at $49.99 each pack. WHOA do they make a difference.
