Default E3 plugs causing misfire?

So I thought I would try e3 plugs in my 06 ss. Ive had great success with these plugs in my old 03 mitsubishi diamante so I figured id try them in my ss. Well I started it up yesterday afterward and the check engine light started flashing.

looked up e3 misfires and it seems they can be too cold?

Recommended plugs and gap?

They are not a good plug at all trust me. E3 to a ngk or Denso is like a Dodge neon vs a GTR. I run a shop and did a few tune ups for a miss fire code. Guess what plugs where in the vehicle...E3s. Put oe plugs in miss gone.

E3 plugs are crap...

you want AC Delco or NGK's for best performance/results...

have seen it many many many times when doing tunes for people that started out using E3 crap plugs, heh...
