Pulstar Spark Plugs with PlasmaCore
Gain up to 7 Horsepower with Plasma-assisted Spark Plugs
Pulstar Spark Plugs use innovative plasma-assisted combustion technology to increase horsepower and torque.
Plasma-assisted combustion is already used to improve engine performance for racing, but requires complex control systems and costs nearly $2,000 per cylinder. Pulstar Spark Plugs, manufactured by Enerpulse Technologies, brings plasma-assisted combustion to consumers with a simple spark plug upgrade. Pulstar uses a patented internal capacitor, developed with the help of a US DoE laboratory , to create a high-intensity electrical pulse that ionizes the air-fuel mixture and saturates it with combustion-enhancing plasma. With its plasma-assisted combustion, Pulstar ignites fuel instantly and burns it rapidly; gaining up to 7 horsepower, 9 ft.-lbs. of torque ... and, delivering wicked throttle response.Features:
Certified Independent Testing
Captured by AVL using a process known as Schlieren photography, this video shows Pulstar's 5MW pulse followed by the plasma affected fuel mixture burning at twice the rate of the conventional spark plug. Filmed at 64,000 frames-per-second, this independent third-party test shows a side-by-side comparison of Pulstar and the top-selling premium iridium spark plug. AVL is an Austrian-based automotive consulting firm and independent research institute and is well known in the automotive industry and among OEMs.
Matthias Neubauer of AVL co-authored a paper with Enerpulse's founder and chief technology officer Lou Camilli that researched the effects of this 5MW pulse on fuel consumption, emissions, and catalyst heating. The paper, titled "High Power Discharge Combustion Effects on Fuel Consumption, Emissions, and Catalyst Heating " was reviewed and published by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) for the SAE 2014 International Powertrain, Fuels & Lubricants meeting.
