    with our type coil pack setup where the plug fires on exhaust stroke as well as compression stroke (as I understand it) the plugs need the dual prongs to extend the plug life and if you use single prong plugs they need to be replaced twice as often, but as far as function, they both will work the same.

    Thanks everyone, I just went with the dual prong. Gotta obey the sticker. Sticker knows all.
