I ordered about 20 of them a month or so ago and only got around to putting one in an engine this weekend. I put a 2002HD in a well sorted out GMS .47. It's too early to tell how they work over time. My first impression is that it ran just like the OS 8 I pulled out. That's good news. On the other hand, it cost more than the 8 I pulled out and I was completely happy with the OS plug. I don't know what I expected.

I'll be following to see what others have to say and keep you posted with what I learn.

Hi
Can you tell me which plug is used in the Jett engines, and which one are you using?
I am looking at importing these into NZ. The OS 8 plug is selling here for around $15 nz
