Regular gaskets are used in many cars. The headgasket with proper torque has lasted for 400+ HP, so I don't think the MHG would be necessary for OEM.supraboy1 said:i would like to change that up a bit. how aboutif the product was that beneficial,everyone would have it. we sure could have used a mhg as oem,which would have been beneficial.
no electrical component is 100% effiicent. so putting a capacitor inline w/ your spark plug wire is going to take some energy to charge the capacitor, some of that energy turns into heat. on top of that, it takes TIME charge the capacitor and wait for it to fill to capacity before it discharges and passes the current.
its definitly not what i want to have going on in my ignition.
Ya.. I guess if you use a big enough capacitor... same goes with a cap for a stereo. Actually, I didn't think about this but a capacitor on your stereo keeps a heavy load off the charging system at once. You know like instead of your headlights dimming everytime your are bumping mad bass yo! All in all though I think in a hard 4th gear pull the capacitors would become obsolete. Not really worth the money to me.Chrisco said:Actually, the capacitor would be fully charged upon startup of the engine. That being the case, it would only need to be charged as fast as it discharges and only with as much amperage as being discharged. If the capacitor was made to hold more than it needed to discharge per spark, and could maintain a steady charge, it might be possible. Otherwise how would caps in stereo systems be beneficial?Albeit, stereo systems don't hit max constantly, but nevertheless.
Anyway, wouldn't using something like this be just another way of upgrading your ignition system?? More voltage/amperage = greater spark. Pretty much makes this obsolete at that price.

omg... this makes TOTAL sense. i dont know why i didnt think about this before!!!!jz_killa_t68 said:If you want better efficency out of your spark plugs, spend $2 a plug and have them cryro treated. It raises the efficency from 75%-85% to 85%-95%. (This is what came from a friend that studied cryro and other types of treatments in a class at MMI in Arizona)
