Thumbs up

I just got a set of Irridium Pulstar Pulse Plugs for my 03 SVT Focus. Just curious if anyone has tried these yet? I had Direct Hits on my 93 Probe GT and they were badass! These are what have replaced Direct Hits. So I'm looking forward to seeing how they perform. They were tested on HP TV, they dyno tested on a C5 Corvette proved a peak increase of 7.9 horsepower and peak torque gain of 7.4 ft lbs at 5,100rpm. Curiuos to see if I feel a difference via butt dyno ;-)

Nothing.
All are junk.


Stick to what's proven and reliable, Autolite or Motorcraft.

Hi I'm new to this forum and I kinda wish I would had became a member before I bought my plugs and wires. I just got my hands on a 02 Focus SVT and decided to give it a tune-up. I got some LTR5IX-11 4344 NGK Iridium IX plugs reasonably priced on eBay and I also bought some JBA PowerCables (W06809). I've read mixed reviews on Iridium plugs here, can anyone tell me if putting the gap to .57-.6 is the way to go with those plugs or should I return them and go with MotorCraft's. The wires are low resistance.
