Glow Plugs

is there a "better than stock" glow plug on the market?

Ive heard that Borg and warner were supposed to heat up faster but there all around 10 bucks a pop.

just wondering if anyone has any personal experience with different glow plugs.

I was told to use Beru/Motorcraft plugs & nothing else due to other brands swelling & getting stuck and/or breaking when trying to remove.

I'm waiting on some Welman plugs, the top aftermarket producer.
I know of only 2 good ones: From Ford and the Welman.

An OBS or 2, or 3...

Bosch is by far the best in my opinion, just put them in mine and a crank and a half when it was 20* out and it fired, before i would be about 6 cranks. plus if you do the plugs replace the relay with a Stancor one instead of the crappy one they give you from Ford or an autoparts store

KW900driver, is that with your truck plugged in or just a completely cold 20* start? My truck wont fire up when its this cold when it isnt plugged in. If i plug it in for so much an an hour it fires right up.
