Champion Spark Plugs
The company pioneered the use of iridium on spark plugs back in the 1970s to provide enhanced ignition and longer plug life. Today Champion widely uses iridium and precious metal technologies as well as F.I.S.S. resistor (Fired In Suppressor Seal) technology and MLR (Metal alloy Low ohm Resistor) technology to manufacture spark plugs in an array of materials and designs providing a full offering of OE replacements and enhanced ignition.
Champion's extensive experience and great commitment to perfection led to design enhancements that optimize the performance of every product they make including spark plugs made for a wide range of cars, SUVs, trucks, and racing applications. As the result, the company earned a global reputation for high quality and performance-proven ignition solutions. The brand also manufactures spark plug wires and other ignition system specific wiring.
Champion is also a longtime sponsor of various racing events, cars, and series including two series run under sanctioning by IMSA (International Motor Sports Association). And success at the track inevitably translates into innovative maintenance solutions for everyday drivers including but not limited to iridium, platinum, double platinum, and racing spark plugs that adhere to the industry’s toughest standards.
Champion has been the leading spark plug manufacturer for over 100 years. Founded in Boston in 1908 by Frank D. and Robert A. Stranahan, the company moved to Toledo 2 years later to be near its customer Willys-Overland, which at the time was one of the largest producers of automobiles in the U.S. Champion grew to become a Fortune 500 Company and was purchased by Cooper Industries in 1989. Today it's a division of Federal-Mogul Corporation.

I bought these to replace the defective two piece OEM plugs that break off on my 2005 F150 V8. These are specifically designed to prevent breakage upon removal and can handle a lot of torque because they are a one piece design. The dealer wanted to install so called improved Motorcraft plugs and I said no way. Once the old plugs were out and these were in, the engine seemed to run a little better. Buy the way, the longer you wait to change the plugs, the more likely you will end up with serious engine damage.
