Any one know how good this new spark plug is? How does it compare to like some of other aftermarket spark plugs. I forget the names but I had some after market ones before.

There was an article about them in Modified mag (in think) and they actually dynoed before and after. It actually showed an increase in hp.

The Dyno results are claims made by the manufacturer. The only way to get an accurate HP dyno result you would have to replace new for new. Most of the Dyno results are from cars with 100,000 miles. Of course you will see gains in HP when you replace a old tired plug with a new precious metal plug.

The big question is wattage. What wattage are they producing and how are they producing this without a Flux Capacitor or the help of David Copperfield?

Sounds like another Split Fire? :yawn:

I would save my money.

I saw the test article on mod too and they got 5hp vs 6 or something

Are you sure this is not an advertorial? Most of the stuff i have seen is a paid spot.

yes it was not a paid ad. They even said in the article that they were thinking it would not yield any gains and were surprise when it did. I forget what car they used but it was a newer one.

Its ad hype. 25 dollars a spark plug thats alot of money. Don't you think most car companies would use them in their cars from the factory if it really worked?

No. Would cost the car company 25bucks a plug or what ever it is whole sale.

Exactly. would be an almost free 5 or 6 hp so I would think they would use them if they worked.

Pure snake oil! if you want to waste your money go ahead in one of the tests i saw the difference was like 1.26 horsepower and that was on a 300 hp vehicle. Thats not enough that could be dyno error. I had a chance to buy them for 15 shipped on the mazda 3 forum and didnt. over 50 people did however and nobody posted again on the website about how "good" they were. In fact the only post was somebody that received one that didnt work.

Here is a test someone did with a lot of data and showed no real increase in gas mileage. http://www.cleanmpg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10876&highlight=pulstar

i bought a set of these. from what i've seen on tv and magazines, they are supposed to add hp and increase fuel ecomomy. i haven't experienced either of these. according to my gas mileage meter, i'm still averaging 29.5mpg ranging from stop and go traffic to 20 miles at 62mph for my 50 mile one way drive to work. they're also only good for around 50,000mi. did i get ripped off... sure did. but, if it would have worked, it would have been worth the money. its all about trial and error. if it costs a few bucks, well, it costs a few bucks. :P

humm. I had nology on my original xb. I though I felt a difference. I mean they are still in business so people I guess are still buying it.

In my opinion, its just a different heat range for the plugs. Unless your car is pushing more hp than stock. It consider it a waste of money. Not just that but your ignition system will affect it, not the plugs alone. Thats why people get msd to get more kv for the spark. I have to agree with you, save the money.
