diesel rx glow plugs

i have been doing a lot of research on which glow plug to get recently and these seem to come up quite a bit. a lot of people don't recomend them because motorcraft is supposed to be the best to get but it seems that all of the guys that do use the diesel rx say their truck has never cold started better. i can find nothing but good reviews on these.

has anyone actually had a bad experience with these glow plugs?

i am about to order a 6 pos chip from xdp and they sell these plugs so i was just going to add a set to the order.

I bet those trucks never cold started better because they didn't have working GPs or GPR before
Just get 8 ZD-11s. And check your GPR too.

I've had diesel rx for 6 months and no complaints - they do their job and from my research I thought they were a wise choice

Wonder how it'll be to remove them.

this is basically what i am trying to get out of this thread. has anyone actually had a bad experience with the diesel rx brand glow plug?

the thought of putting another set of motorcraft/beru plugs in this truck doesn't make my nipples hard. this truck has gone through multiple sets of glow plugs in it's time and we all know that they don't work as well as they could. if there is something better out there, i'd like to try it.

Was it too much trouble to follow the link I posted?

The last post there talks about having a problem with drx00138 GPs. Is that what you're think about using?

good info there, thanks

i did click the link but that thread started out talking about some other off-shore brand that wasn't working for the guy.

beru it is. i used to use beru spark plugs and they were awesome. they were the only spark plug that lasted longer than 6 months in a vw engine i had many years ago.

so i'm going to get a set of motorcraft plugs instead. autozone has them listed at $11.99 each online. does autozone give you the same price if you walk into a store or is this just an online price?
