I just spent 30 minutes reading their facts and customer letters. I never once saw any analytical data backing up their performance claims.

Half the letters also involved rebuilds or other major work just prior to the plugs being installed.

The other half made no claims that could be attributed to anything other than a normal, routine plug replacement.

It should also be noted that the term 'field effect' in a traditional electronic sense does not apply to the way these plugs work. There is no 'effect' due to an electromagnetic field or induction at all. It'* simply a circular spark pattern.

I find it interesting the number of years they have been selling these, and I have yet to hear of them, and there list of distributors is rather 'flintstone-ish' if you know what I mean.

There is surprisingly little REAL information on that website.

I'd want some more facts before I went with them.

Yea, what got me is that the main pic on the website, that the spark plug looks used! Anyways, I think I am going to get some NGK or the other brand that everyone recomends, with some new AC Delco wires.

Their webmasters email link... http://[email protected]/

Bad webdesign... Strike 1

Saying NOS, a brand name popularized by F&F, instead of saying Nitrous or N20.

F&F Boy... Strike 2

Claiming to spark before any other plugs....

Duma$$ thinking they're better then leaders... Strike 3

hmm... i must ask, how do you run an engine on the same oil for 243,000 miles? or more importantly, how stupid do you have to be to make such a claim?

Hell, they probably been disconnected for a long time. Kinda strange how it was one of the top five websites that came back to me on my search I did, so I figured I would look into them.
