In some setups that 1Hp per cylinder exists I'm sure, especially plain ole flat bottoms found in most OEM engines. but I kinda doubt it can bring that much better performance than the tapered platinum tips that comes stock on our engines.
And as I said , I wasnt trying to slam ya..... a forum is about relating to other views. And though I'm well read and alot of years wrenching dont mean I know it all either. Probably not half of it.
You speak about 4 times the spark, but thats doesnt ring true to me If you put 16 tips on a plug you dont get 16 times the spark. just 16 times the ground and a plug only can only conduct as much current as the coil allows. If you increased the voltage and or amperage going through a plug then phrsics would allow this to be true as resistance is built.. Zex now sells a twin tipped plug with the tips at different points to help with predetonation (not for us yet ) but 4 tips seems futile for a stock engine with great plugs and no available way to up the current
They may help as you try to get 5-8 Hp here or there but thats relates to tenth'* of a sec.and not going to the car into the realm of what some imports are running at the track stock. But I am all for seeing somebody go thru all the little things to see how it all adds up, It'* just I want 2 seconds at least off published times and it cant be found that way.
Also when ya get the cover off you are in for the suprise of your life . the SSEi guys complain how hard the 3800'* are to get at back plugs and those engines are candy compared to ours..The big reason my fine wires arent on yet is i have to leave the car there at Dealers for a day. They say it'* not a get an appointment and wait type of thing. The EGR, Strut Crossmember and a few other things have to be taken off and it'* still a huge pain.
My nitrous is also a little different than your normal off the speed shop shelf variety. It has a computer of it'* own, variable flow gas valve thats responds to the bottle pressure and the orifaces chosen for the jets. And activates by TPS voltage which is determined by me as I go thru the computers learn procedure. ....If the new plugs and exhaust cutout kill the predetonation and the Maf registers ok, I will be moving up to a fog setup with minature combo jets tapped into top of manifold in each intake tube . The jets are fed by 8 way manifolds for both nitrous and gas lines. Also an inline high pressure fuel pump that is also TPS activated willl be installed. I love the look of the fog setup and will make the car even better at shows.
Nice to meet a N* owner that has opinions and writes in more than one paragraph
I looooove to BS about our engines.
