    new plug style??

    so its getting close to the time i like to change plugs and i have been hearing bits and pieces of information about a new style of plug... suposedly, it is never supposed to misfire.. instead of the normal bit that sparks, they have a little cage thing. (click here if u have no idea what im talking about) i was just wondering if anyone had instaled these, and if so can you notice a difference?. thanks in advance.

    Most multiple electrode spark plugs are simply snake oil products anyways. That one appears to be no acception.

    It's a gimmick. Formula1 and rotary motors use plugs with NO electrode.

    Spark Plug FAQ: Read if you want spark plug information! - NASIOC

    The biggest thing to remember with these type of products is you gotta really dissect the info and weed through the BS. Sparkplugs have to work with combustion chamber shape,plug angle and valve placement. One single plug "shape" isn't going to magically work with every engine/head type. Also most people will slap in a brand new "magic" plug and "feel" the difference. Well you probably would have felt the same difference by putting in a brand new OEM plug as well if the old ones were past their time. Not saying these plugs couldn't work,just saying there is a big possibility they won't or be worse. I would stand to say indexing your plugs would make more of an improvement than these plugs.
