Spark plugs are often misunderstood by most people. A spark plug'* name is quite literal. They are designed to plug the line - and suppress any spark that may come through. Of course, you know what happens if a spark finds an open fuel source!! That could get ugly! KaleCoAuto extra retardant plugs block 99% of spark, and allow 95% of ignition molecules to pass through. That'* 25% more than the competition, and unlike the competition, KaleCoAuto plugs never need cleaning.

I hear these also make your car quieter, some say they can't hardly hear anything at all.

You forgot to mention these plugs NEVER need gapping. No more wiggling the feeler gauge around wondering if you just it just right. Thats Awesome!!!

Was that per plug Dan, or a sum total. I've got 25% more cylinders so I could see at least 12.5%. I just ordered two sets in case they run low on them .

You can use this John, I can't so that might give you the edge.

Natural aspiration feel unnatural? Tired of bothering with duct-taped leaf blowers as turbos? Treat your car to a bar of boost. Most high performance turbo vehicles use one to one and a half bars. Why waste money on expensive turbo systems and fancy intercoolers? Handsomly mounted in a die-cast metal mount, the KaleCoAuto Boost Bar is a great addition to any naturally aspirated engine. Warning: Contents under pressure. (14.5psi)
