Well, I had to re-jet the carbs because a fatal flaw in using an Edlbrock pro flo on a motorcycle happened, the wire bail that holds the screen and foam filter media broke
When I got out of high school my clunker Mazda gave up the ghost, so I bought a new VW Fox, so eventually time came for a tuneup, went to NAPA asked for the usual cap rotor wires plugs, clerk tells me the price😲 WTWF, it was way more than expected I asked why, he looked it up, OEM plugs were around $10 EACH " just give me non OEM "Any specific reason you chose those over the OEM NGK or Denso? How much were they? Let us know how it runs.
If I remember right that was Pastor Dave.Yes, do a test and report how they work out.
A few years ago Pulstar spark pugs were a sponsor here and one of the guys tested them. They were very expensive and had a capactor in them for extra sparks.
Seems like it didn't have remarkable results.
Was that you"Captain D" ?
I wonder if they are still running i
Don't want to bust your bubble, however, these "gimmicks" have been around long as I can remember. Have a set of Auburn TC3 spark plugs my dad had in the garage since at least the 60's. Have half a dozen or so like this still in the box.
NGK also makes a strapless plug that arcs to the outer rim which I believe is called a surface discharge plug and mostly used in snowmobiles. Denso makes a dual strap platinum plug that Toyota used in a bunch of stuff, was surprised the first time I pulled those out of an engine.Don't want to bust your bubble, however, these "gimmicks" have been around long as I can remember.

Edit: I've learned to set the gap closer to the minimum. Gap is only going to get wider with mileage, doesn't make sense to start out at the max. The minimum gap also made my Tourer start easier and run better.
Also, I believe the reason these things seem to work is you have replaced an old, maybe worn, maybe half fouled plug with a new one. Chances are any new plug might seem to run better. I do believe the iridium are more reliable and longer lasting. Another exception was the original Champion copper-core plugs, People were putting those in Hondas (cars) and losing 2 mpg... Not sure why or how,, but had multiple customers complain and going back to NGK or Denso restored their normal mpg.
P.S. don't trust the cross references. look each one up in the manufacturers catalog. Was looking for plugs for my Mazda years ago, Parts store I worked at had Champion, AC, Autolite and Bosch plugs, tried crossing the oem plug, then looked up the plug in each brand, cross-refd each to the other 3 and came up with 17 different plugs from 4 brands and the original. I quit at that point but I suspect had I re-crossed the cross-refd ones it may have been more.
dang it, I'm babbling again,,,
