Interesting new spark plugs

Check these out and tell me what you think.
So many of the "new" spark plugs are just "snake oil", but these may actually provide some benefits IMO. I can see where the enlarged power conductor and a capacitor might help.

I have actually bought them before they worked pretty well and the autozone store I got them from told me to try them out if I didn't like them I could return them even after being used . How would they hold up against the E3 plugs ?

I don't know anything about E3 Plugs, but it's likely they are just another gimmick plug with a strange side electrode.
On their web page they have a video that says "E3 Technology EXPLAINDED ".
Now that right there makes me chuckle and squelches any desire to want to buy anything from them.


I'm hoping the Pulstars' are not just another gimmick, but who knows only time will tell.
I'll wait and see if any big name racers or hot rod builders use them before I buy them.

E3 spark plugs are no better than irdium plugs it a hoax it will increase power and increase mpg if your having miss fires thats the trick they play on you

Re: Interesting new spark plugs

If you want to try some plug modifications look in the Useful Info thread.You can use some inexpensive plugs to experiment with instead of blowing a lot of cash on gimmick plugs.

with the info in the sticky on spark plug modifications with grinding and indexing the plug.the point is to expose more of the plug to the mixture.it really makes me think about how much of a gimmick the multi prong plugs are.especially the plugs that have 3 or 4 prongs on them.it seem like even know they give great spark they may not be exposed to the mixture as good.

Exactly!
What you want to do is to expose as much of the "flame kernel" of your ignition spark as possible to the combustion chamber fuel mix. This will allow a much better ignition of the mixture and allow the flame front to expand across the chamber quicker consuming more of the mixture therein producing more power and fuel economy.


What I saw that interested me in the Pulstar plugs is that the electrode running through the plug is bigger allowing it to carry more energy and the capacitor supposedly adds a boost to that energy producing a larger than normal spark in the combustion chamber.


Can you imagine what using those plugs along with an MSD ignition should do?
Now if they only prove out and work like they say they do......


However I won't hold my breath and I will keep watching the developments in using lasers to fire the combustion chamber mixture. I find that interesting too.
