No disrespect but if you didn't know how many plugs you might want to have them installed.

There are a number of threads on plug chang outs on here.

I need to figure out a new signature.

You won't see a change in power from spark plugs. You might see better fuel economy, but not power. Anyone who claims that is just lying out their ***.

I'm pretty sure you wouldn't see a power gain on ANY engine.

Sorry, but this is incorrect. Simply swapping one brand of spark plug for another plug won't gain power, but swapping old, worn out plugs for brand new ones will gain you some power, although not much.
