So ive never tried Pulstar Plugs Im trying to cross some part numbers and find the plug that we would need on the focus. One thing Ive been sceptical about has been the results of pulstars in cars.
if available who would buy the pulstars for the 2012 2.0L
and what have your results been on other cars

Had really great luck with Brisk LGS plugs but no one makes aftermarket plugs for our cars yet...heard Pulstars can create RF interferance with some drive by wire systems etc.
Brisk LGS plugs personal results 02 Mustang GT 4.10 gears, full bolt ons, brisk lgs plugs=24MPG

well ive been talking with lou Camilli who handles new cars and there is an after market sparkplug for the 2012 2.0 tivct (ford P/N=sp-535) the after market plug is an autolite P/N xp5364.. with the specification from autolite the cross to the pulstar plugs is the EF1 series in platinum EF1p and iridium EF1i.

What are you expecting from the plugs?

update on the plugs.. there is a difference WOW!!
09-14-2012 10:27 AM
What kind of differences? I ran pricey plugs on my 400hp turbo Eclipse and noticed no gains or losses when I went back to simply NGK plugs. It's hard to imagine any real significant gains on a low hp NA engine.

You just can't say WOW, without posting real information.

ok well i've got a better throttle response. On the dyno test we gained 2hp Pre-learn. my exhaust don't sound raspy as much, and the 40mph to 80mph (in 4th gear)pull went from 17.3sec to 16.9sec. we could not complete the fuel flow test because of the direct injection pump causing pulsations making the dyno think we used a gallon in a quarter mile so right now its just about driving like normal for two weeks and then go dyno it again for the final test after the computer and fuel trims adjust. On the plus side, my normal avg mpg on the dash has gone from 31mph to 34mph .. my real test is going to be traveling on the freeway at 75mph
