**UPDATE**

Here is the plug after 6 months and 9000 miles


()()()()()()()()()()()

I was reading up on plugs for my truck and thought What the heck ... only a couple bucks more per plug I would try out the Pulstar plugs. They seem to have a good rating with the Titan. The pictures are what I received from Amazon and they came in new boxes with the protective cover.

** I called Plustar and spoke to a Kyle. Great guy they are shipping new plugs out today and stated that this was "weird" and that he had seen this before from Amazon.

When you get your plugs you may want to double check them.


Pictures Enjoy:

This plug has a bigger crack in the electrode, then my ex-girlfriend


This electrode is angled ... WTF *was it a Monday when they made these?


Another weird electrode


In this picture, it does not look like the plugs came from the same manufacturer?


Seems the gap on this one is a little off .. :lol:

Nope.
Those don't look new to me either.
But they don't look like they spent much time in a motor.
Maybe somebody ran them in a vintage plug cleaner and then sent them to you.

Yeah when i got mine they came in perfect shape... Well besides one of the plugs missing a crush gasket. I called pulsar up and they overnighted me a new plug as well as 50 dollar inconvenience check. They are working great though. Those were used there is no way they came from the factory like that.

When I examined them they did not appear used. When yours came in was it in a cardboard box or the plastic box that they show on line?

I am thinking they are knockoffs??

WOW! Someone made a boo boo!

In this pic they don't even look like 2 of the same plugs...
The electrodes look different???

This one looks bent or broken?

I know the guy who designed these plugs, He also makes igniting head gaskets for harleys and various vehicles, basically they are a head gasket with several spark ignition points throughout the head gasket, then the spark plug holes are covered with plugs. Pretty interesting stuff actually. He himself makes good quality products, but when it went to get mass produced im sure you will see some imperfections. Overall they are an excellent product though... the guy who designed them goes by Phaser, hes a weirdo but hes extremely intelligent. He lives by me over here in artesia.

Plugs installed and learned fuel maps reset.

I even used Cipher to check each plug one at a time ... It seems good to me ...

I will see if there is any millage increase but I doubt it.
