12kw at the wheels..... if only it was that easy! but no way!!!!! doubt u would get even 1kw at the Crank! bettr plugs and leads offer smother engine performance and better combustion.

You fort? So was that thought or faught?

My coil has done over 700,000kms. My plugs and leads have done over 150,000kms and they still light the fire. Even in my case a set of you beaut plugs and leads would only give me about 1 or 2kw.


But If you were running a big power engine then maybe you might get 12kw from a set of performance plugs and leads.

i got a dvd from a street ford mag, they used the splitfire kit (plug, leads and air filter) on a EF, the car gained just over 8rwkw. But who knows how old the original plugs leads and filter were

After using splitfire gauges I wouldn't touch their products (except for the actual gauge cups)

Its all marketing, I have the streetfords dvd also, and its not very scientific to just bung it on there like that. They dont show the condition of the pre existing hardware and that should lead one with a bit of nouse to ask some questions why not.

Splitfire would have paid a lot for that advertisment piece.

The only way you would see the improvement they claim is if the origionals were rooted.

imo there is power to be had by moding,upgrading and tuning spark and ignition parts to a point.
first speak to and spend some cash at an excellent auto electricrian.
then a tuner or just a good tuner.
on a budget use quality parts i.e plugs,leads,grease and index your sparkplugs.
my brand of choice is bosch for the money
money no option i would go msd
