im afraid these are like the electric superchargers, useless.

The only effect the increased current will have is to increase plug temperatures and eat away at the anodes. If you have a good set of HT leads, strong coilpacks and some good spark plugs you'll get all the spark your engine can use. The ones in the 2.8 are rated to 110 amps which is verging on unuseable levels of current.


(these devices have limited use on older cars that still use a magneto, because their often cheaper to buy than a new magneto/distributor/HT leads/plugs)

I don't understand this product. The size of a spark is determined by the size of the conducting surfaces and the voltage level. Pumping more current into a spark plug won't increase the size of the spark.......will it???????? I thought the idea was to keep voltage high and current low?

I wouldn't be plugging one in to the M that's for sure but curious to know if it does fry everything or do nothing.

A healthy ignition system will supply your car with enough spark, millions of pounds will have been spent by BMW to make sure of this during development. I can't see how increasing the current can do anything except possibly invalidate your car insurance and damage HT leads/plugs etc.

Ultimately it is up to you but personally I think this product is an expensive waste of money. :-q

Maybe you can search Okada plasma direct and search some result on dyno.
My friends show me some report about this.
I don't know they have any affected or not but didn't see any problem after 40000km

Actually I just want to strong up my skill and share my knowlege here.
Fine if no interest ;)
