TCI 3 quarts trans pan

Hey I had installed a TCI 3 quarts deep oil pan. In my 04 DTR MM a while ago. And I had to bring it down. To install a Auto Meter transmission gauge. And a steering column gauge pod. That I got from Chris at ADTR.NET. Chris is the man too see. For all your Panther needs. Great guy great prices. And his customer service is second to none. So In order to tap the TCI oil pan. For the Auto meter gauge fitting. Reinstalled the pan. With a Fel-Pro rubber gasket. Torqued the bolts too 10 foot pounds of torque with the torque wrench. Filled the trans with Motorcraft transmission fluid. And a Lucas transmission fix additive. Installed 4 new 02 sensor I bought from Ford. For a cheap $134 dollars. Because I keeped getting a code left bank too lean bank 1 and some time Bank 2. And installed a set of E3 Spark Plugs to work with my MSD Coil packs. And man does she run great. Crisp throttle response. And more MPG. Even tho my car is boosted you can see the difference. In power and the distance in mpg.

Great news. Most of us with superchargers use NGK -TR6 plugs with .034" gap.

And so was I. But these E3 plugs. Are pretty much BAD ASS. They eliminate the gaping method. But you can feel there burning method. On the start up. And as you get on them. I very much like them. And will use them from now on. Well worth the price. And worth the time wrenching them on.

Just my opinion.......

Don't you think if these plugs gave you more HP and better MPG the manufactures would be using them? They don't do what they claim, that's why they are not OEM equipment. Plenty of stories on the internet that say the car developed intermittent misfires and barely ran after installing E3's.

It seems to me the E3 plugs would work a little like indexing normal plugs......if the gap's right there should be an advantage however small??

I believe BMWs (or at least mine) uses this type of plug as OEM equipment....but that's apples to oranges.
