Denso spark plugs with 3 ground electrodes increase durability. Semi-surface discharge increases ignitability and fouling resistance. Machine rolled threads prevent seizing or cross threading during installation and removal. 100% pre-fired to assure the highest quality possible. Purified alumina powder insulator provides exceptional strength and thermal conductivity. Five rib insulator prevents flashover. Copper-glass seal bonds center electrode and insulator for a gas-tight seal.
