Power Star Spark Plugs

Not sure if this is the right forum for posting this, but -

A fellow I met at a cookout told me that he improved the performance of his 96" H-D with Power Star Spark plugs. Was wondering if anyone out there had experience with them, if they actually improved performance, and did they run a dyno test to verify, and what the difference in numbers (HP or torque) ended up being -

Thanks -

I'm thinking 30hp minimum.

Torque probably doubled though. That's what he was feeling. (rolls eyes)

PowerSTAR Performance Spark Plugs

The PowerSTAR plugs are not like the Splitfire plugs.
They are unlike any other spark plug on the market.
Three US Patents.

Splitfire, Bosch, NGK all have multi-grounds. The spark will only jump to one ground at a time.

The PowerSTAR has multiple sets of gaps that under the high voltage electromagnet field produces simultaneous ignition events.

PowerSTAR gets more than one of the tips to produce a flame front. The flame front is spread out over a larger surface area.

This produces more Torque and Horsepower.

Not 30 Hp, but 5-10% low end torque from the stock HD-Delphi ignition. 4 ft-lbs from a TC-96.

The kind of difference you can feel when you twist the throttle.

We have hundreds of happy Harley customers that can feel the difference it makes in their bikes.

Check out the website.

BOUTYM is reading this now saying WTF is this?
I don't believe any claims of improved performance unless I hear it on Oprah.

PowerSTAR Performance Spark Plug RS-12CB8-10
$17.99
SKU: RS-12CB8-10
Per plug....Nothing stated where they are made. Another Chinese plug? I'll stick with stock USA plugs. Beyond their claims of increased power, no data was presented on their website.

Hey multispark, If I buy your spark plugs do you guarantee the claim of "... 5-10% low end torque from the stock HD-Delphi ignition. 4 ft-lbs from a TC-96."

If it lives up to the claim I'll gladly pay the cost of a before and after dyno. If it doesn't, will you pay for it? If you have faith in your product, this should be a no-brainer.

spark plugs

A customer just brought these plugs to my freinds shops attention. He did do back to back tests on the dyno, he did see on a low compression 107" almost 3 hp and three pounds of torque. He didnt beleive it at first, switched plugs out, numbers went down, put the power star plugs in, went back up. I've also heard from people that just putting in a fresh set of plugs will increase power, I will be throwing these plugs in my bike, will do a couple of pulls, then put some mileage on the bike, then recheck on dyno, hopefully numbers will hold true,
