Spark Plugs...

I know I am opening a can of worms here... But, what does everyone use for spark plugs??? Has anyone tried SplitFires??? Are they worth it??? Also, any recommended ignition sets I should think about getting??? I have a 2.5L YJ and I seem to be a little short on low-end power (I have a dead spot between 1500-2500 RPM) and thought some ignition improvements might remedy this... I already have a throttle spacer, K&N and cat back exhaust... Should I upgrade to a 4.0L throttle body first??? Thoughts???

I just got a spitfire spark plug the other day. I need a new one anyways and for $5.00 i figured what the hell you know. I guess it is supposed to be better, but i am not exactly sure for what. I have yet to install it, but i'll let you know when I do. Along with the spark pug i am putting on a 2in. body lift.

Hey quick question, is it worth it to get the cat back exhaust that you have on your rig?? I have a 4.0 already, and looked at getting one. Also what price range are they in.

Ya know, I really like the way by 4banger sound with the cat backs and intake setup I have... I know this may sound a little funny, but it sounds a little like a tractor, and being from Nebraska, I have a lot of respect for the power of a tractor... The exhaust was installed by the previous owner, so I have no idea about price or what the Jeep® ran like prior to the mod... I do know I smoked a Honda Civic with one of those coffee can things attached to it exhaust the other day... So, I got that going for me... I think I'll go ahead and get some upgraded wires, a new cap, and some normal plugs this weekend... I'll let y'all know how it goes...

I Just ditched my splitfires for Bosch Platinum + 4's. I prefer the Bosch
