8 bucks a pop were they?

8 bucks a pop were they? Might be worth it for the 1.4% hp increase alone, haha. But increased mileage, real tests. Hell, they would easily pay for themselves.

Looks like it may be time

Looks like it may be time for some more mileage runs this weekend. I hope the stupid winds finally die down. They have been about 10-15 mph for what seems like a month now. You get great mileage from the tailwinds but the headwinds suck! I think you lose more from headwinds than you gain from tailwinds.

I would love to hear how the runs go. If it turns out good I will have to get some.

Excuse the ignorance...

Excuse the ignorance...

but the drawings make it look like the spark is a gas that is emitted for a period of time before it is released.



A spark doesn't build up like they are saying. It just happens. Maybe some of the engineers on this forum can shed some light on what their claims are and if they hold water.

I'm not exactly certain I understand what the above pictures are actually supposed to be demonstrating.

The spark isn't instanteous,

The spark isn't instanteous, it moves throughout the cylinder as it ignites stuff. The idea in this case it that it gets out the faster, more directly, and blows the hells out of it more efficiently, rather than being roundabout and weak and all that.

So how is this any different than the other spark plugs that claim to have a hotter burn and increased combustion? I'm really interested in seeing the results, but I'm not convinced yet. Everything I've seen so far makes me believe that a spark plug is a spark plug. Until I see evidence otherwise, I'm skeptical.

Well, as opposed to starting

Well, as opposed to starting the spark out on the side it shoots it down the middle, which'll create more of a burn surface are blah blah blah, so burns it quicker/better, who knows if it works.

Just wondering what made you decide on these plugs in particular. Is there quite a bit of positive buzz out there?
