In your cars, no they won't make ANY difference. The $3 standard NGKR's do the Job fine. I had a 355 blown VN SS, it ran ngkr's, never had an issue. That is proof enough that they are fine.

Agreed again.. You could use iridiums, but they'll be glued on and black-ish when you pull them out. I've changed Iridium plugs and I personally feel much safer just using the standard plugs and changing them at the recommended intervals..

At $3 a plug for NGK's, you can't go wrong..

I threw the bosch super 4's into the Daewoo and VL before the old NGK's were buggered.

Particularly the VL didnt really notice more power, however it was a hell of a hot smoother, both in building revs and at idle. Daewoo not a lot of difference- little smoother

Good value- jury is still out...

Never had much luck with Bosch plugs myself. I prefer NGK or Champion
