Bringing you,

Spark plug technology

  • The spark plug has not really changed in 120 years.

  • While there have been many introductions based on manipulation of the electrodes they are still limited to 50 watts of power &

  • Power ignites fuel !

    -Improved fuel economy

    -Lower emissions

    -More power

50 Watts

1 Million Watts

The value proposition

“Great product!  It put the ‘sport’ back in my car.” - R. Smith, 1994 3000GT

What is a pulse plug?

  • Pulsed power technology – accumulating energy over a relatively long period of time and releasing it very quickly thus increasing the instantaneous power.

  • Sandia National Laboratories – leader in pulsed power technology.

  • A spark plug with integral capacitor that employs intelligent energy management to increase the amount of ignition energy coupled to the fuel charge.

Z Machine - 290 trillion watts - 4 billionths of a second, about 80 times the entire world's output of electricity.

Efficient energy management

  • Gen3 in C-P-I families December 2009

  • 11 Patents issued for “Current Peaking Sparkplug” since 2001, 16 pending

20 years of development experience

How Pulstar Works

50 Watts

Energy from the coil is stored in the patented capacitor. At the exact moment needed the energy is released in a high energy pulse increasing cylinder pressure by as much as 10% producing more torque.

Pulstar 1,000,000 watts vs. 50 watts for all other plugs

Flame Kernel Growth

This comparison was captured on high-speed video ( 68,000 frames/sec). It shows the Pulse Plugs flame kernel growing larger and larger. Fuel burns sooner and more efficiently, which results in added power and better fuel mileage.

Pulse plugs ignite more volume.

Benefits of Pulse Technology

  • Increased Horsepower (up to 12%)

  • Improved Fuel Economy ( up to 10% )

  • More Towing Capacity

  • Improved Torque and Throttle Response

  • Improved Cold Starts

  • Reduced CO2

The only plug with “Technology Based “Benefits.

The Best BANG FOR THE BUCK

2001 Corvette 5.7L

Air Intake = 11.5 hp gain /cost of $ 389 or $ 33 per HP

Programmer = 13 HP gain / cost of $ 379 or $ 29 per HP

Exhaust System = 10 gain / cost of $ 699. or $ 70 per Hp

( actual numbers from mfg sites and internet retail pricing)

Pulstar = 12 hp gain/ cost $ 80 or $ 6.60 per Hp

* 2005 Honda S averaged $4 per HP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

50 Watts

1 Million Watts

Pulstar® is the most cost-effective horsepower available.

“…significant improvement in both fuel economy and throttle response." - D. Thompson, '98 Subaru

This is a “Pulse Plug” not a Spark Plug

50 vs 1,000,000 watts! Why use anything else?
