L99 and Pulstar Spark Plug

Forgive me if this subject has been covered, but I was wondering what the opinion is on the use of the Pulstar Spark Plug (http://www.pulstar.com/index.htm) with the L99 engine and the active fuel management system.

Do you think the design of this plug would effect the AFM?

Thanks.

Stick with Delco, but they'd be fine at least there made in the states.

Spark has nothing to do with the AFM components.
I wouldn't trust that product to do what it says it does.
Sounds like a tornado charger and other such snake oils.

Would not go any hotter than what the factory recommends. Recipie for voided warranty and engine damage. Do agree, unless youre modding it, stick with what the factory puts in there, the ignition system on geniii/iv motors is more than adequate from the factory.

If you are modding, lots of ls1 guys are running ngk tr55's. Only problem is they burn out within 10k-15k miles, so you need to pull a couple to check regularly. General rule of thumb is if you add forced induction, or n/a about 100hp over stock, you need to move down a heat range to a cooler plug.

What!?!... a tornado charger quadrupled my horsepower... Well okay, it was just a sticker for the tornado charger, but that stuff works!

Thanks.
Most of the tests I've seen to not support their advertising claims. I think its better to look elsewhere. I have read in the G8 forums where some programming changes have led to better mileage on the AFM engines (I think there’s are L76 motors). They tweak some of the parameters dealing with the AFM. Anyway, I may look more closely in this area when I get my L99 Camaro.

The bottom line is as long as you have enough spark to start combustion you don't need any more. Regular plugs work fine.
