Spark plugs?

I was wondering what plugs are the best to go with on the rex,I was gonna install some fresh one and I was looking at some of the new E3 plugs but not sure which ones to go with.

I'd look at the iridium plugs. Denso and NGK offer these plugs. They have a small diameter iridium center electrode that reduces shrouding of the spark. This helps starting on most engines and has also produces a 1-2% HP increase. This HP increase has been proven time and time again on engine dynos, on all types of engines.

Rut, let me take a look in the service manual and see if it has any cross references, sometimes they do. Also, you could take a look in your user manual, they sometimes list them there as well.

According to the NGK website, the 750 Brute Force uses a 7385, wonder if it would be the same for the Teryx?

I don't knoe the NGK part number off-hand.

The E3 looks like a gimmick. The multiple side electrodes would shroud the spark, which is going to hurt HP. Now, it may go longer between plug changes, but I don't think that's a big concern with the Teryx performance crowd.

Hi Rutcutter,

Is that the NGK plugs part number? I think I might install a couple of fresh ones myself while I have the plastic off.
