Very!

I wonder how much less timing you could run, and how many people will open the bonnet to find only "smithereens" left after retrofitting a "laser plug kit"?

I wonder how much a replacement plug will be compared to a £2 NGK? These cars are just going to keep becoming more expensive to run, aren't they. I think I'll stick to my early '90's cars!

Cheers for sharing

On the paper this is very interesting :

- No more hot spot
- Less missfire ( no need for smaller gap at high pressure etc )
- Significantly lower spark delay
- Multiple ignition point in the combustion chamber ?

I gather from that link that the life span of the lazers will be much longer that spark plugs given their design. So I would guess they may never need changed through out the life of the average engine.

Just wondering if they would ever make production in time to be widely enough used before the likes of electric cars etc start to become more mainstream.
