    anyone tried or heard of these spark plugs??

    a freind of mine who is a bit of a boffin sent me this link..

    http://pulstarplug.com/

    he knows what a ski nut i am and sends me links to various things which he thinks may be of use to me, this link being the latest..

    just wondering if anyone knows anything about them and if they are worth testing out....

    i emailed them about the plugs and this is the response i got...FYI

    Stephen,
    Your engine uses a spark plug with a heat range which we unfortunately do not offer at this point in time; therefore I would recommend that you look at our other great product DirectHits (www.pulstarplug.com/directhits.cfm). You will find that this is the same technology as Pulstar in a two piece application where the pulse element attaches to a non-resistor spark plug. For your application I would recommend that you use the DirectHits S80. The S80 has a diameter of ¾” and will add approximately 1” to the length of your spark plug, so it is recommended that you verify you have sufficient room.
    The S80 comes with a 30 day money back guarantee, as well as a lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects. You can order yours by contacting

    interesting! at first glance it looks like they want u to run a non resistor unit? I don't really trust that or even a capacitor around a cdi?
    however I'm no Boffin

    i am not silly enough to try this myself unless its been previously tested by someone else...

    thats why i asked them if they had been and asked on here if anyone knew about them...

    it was just a thought nothing more.

    From what they say on their website:

    Low Power Discharge plug (LPD) having a peak discharge current of between 0.020 to 0.060 amps. DirectHits is a High Power Discharge spark plug (HPD) generating 500 amps of peak discharge current... 20,000 times more power than LPDs.

    There is no way they can develop 500 amps from the same ignition source. They would need to tap into another power source to develop that much current, which would fry your alternator or blow up your battery. Sounds like BS to me. Don't waste your money.
