Pulstar Announces High-Power Spark Plugs for the Automotive Market

By Auto Tech Outlook | Friday, November 27, 2020

Lou Camilli, CEO

The latest durable line of spark plugs leverages plasma technology to offer more power and torque, quicker throttle response, improved fuel efficiency, and reduced emissions.

FREMONT, CA: Pulstar, a U.S.-based ignition technology company, announces a new fine-wire iridium line, high-power spark plugs for the automotive market combining the industry's most durable component materials with Pulstars unrivaled Plasmacore ignition technology. The latest line replaces Pulstar's Inconel spark plugs and will be available for pre-order from Dec. 1, 2020. The price of the precious metal upgrade will remain $15.95.

Pulstar is always looking for ways to impress its customers. The recent product is the next generation of its patented, Plasmacore spark plug. Whether the automobile is a high-performance coupe, a pickup truck, or the family minivan, a simple upgrade to the new line of Pulstar fine-wire iridium spark plugs will bring an unparalleled driving experience. Users can feel the difference straight away and for years to come.

The new Pulstar spark plugs feature innovations tailored for high durability. Iridium, hard, dense metal with a high melting point, is ideal for resisting corrosion and arc erosion in today's high-temperature engines. The fine-wire design generates a consistent and stable spark that revamps the electrodynamics of the Plasmacore ignition event. The insulator has been refined from the ground up, with the latest, sturdier profile and a more robust ceramic build that increases tensile and dielectric strength.

On the design of the product, Camilli, its inventor, is added. The Pulstar fine-wire iridium spark plugs have 35 percent higher resistance to fracture, very low error rates, and cycle-to-cycle electrical discharge consistency that is the best we have ever seen. Pulstar'sCamilli developed the Plasmacore ignition technology with Albuquerque's Sandia National Laboratories, one of three National Nuclear Security Administration research and development (R&D) labs the U.S.

Road and dyno testing of Pulstar spark plugs with Plasmacore technology have illustrated measurable enhancements in horsepower, torque, and mileage across various vehicles. Tests conducted at Motiva Performance on a Lotus engine showed increases to the horsepower of seven percent and the torque of ten percent. DSPORT Magazine also reviewed Pulstar spark plugs and reported increased horsepower of 3.5 percent and torque of 3.8 percent on their Honda Civic.
