I just installed this firestorm.. N i say it works beautifully on my Levin..

I think in some engine, it works but not in others.. Why?

It's just science.. Some engine design, burns fuel efficiently.. So, anything extra does not give any improvement

Some engine design have flaws n didn't fully burn d fuel.. This kind of engines need something like firestorm

Well.. That's only my opinion :wink:

Oh.. Forgot to mention..

Product knowledge of d seller must be very good.. If not, terrible things will happen

I buy d product from a friend. He tell me to plug it in AM2 fuse..

I check my fuse.. AM2 is 30A.. & also different type of socket..

So, i ask around n google for answer

AM2 is actually for alternator.. So, if u plug in there, all electrical things in d car will be over-voltaged

If u have a voltage stabilizer, it would cancel d effect..

I put in IGN fuse.. Which i think is d right thing to do..

my opinion only

Not to say or side with TS though. But the firestorm does improve my CRV car though. Planning to put inside my MYVI soon enough.
Not sure, since so much sparks will it damage the spark plug and such? Got one more new version SUPER not sure how does it help with the thing. Said to be 3 times more though.

the 1 i throw away is STORMBERG

I'm still using d FIRESTORM.. it works fine.. running lean now.. so, i need to put more fuel in it.. I'll get a fuel regulator soon..

well, u know, to get more power u need more air, more fuel n more spark :wink:

i just wanna know if any1 else has a burnt coil after using it.. my coil is old already.. it will die sooner or later, right?

I'm very very very curious as to why the manufacturer or designer or owner of this product decided to use no marketing strategy as their marketing strategy. I mean, no website, no published findings, no explanation on how it works or why it works and solely rely on their resellers to do their selling for them with youtube videos of the product increasing the capacitance or voltage output of the sparkplug (incidentally they claim it's not a step-up device, which if it was - it would shorten the lifespan of the source of electricity) and when asked, all the resellers do nothing but try to debunk based on their trial runs.

I'm sorry but that's like saying the Wright brothers saying that human flight is possible because birds can do it too. Where's the proof? Where's the how-does-it-work? I need so much more than feedback from people who'll probably succumb to the placebo effect because the product isn't cheap to buy in the first place. Also, modern car manufacturers aren't exactly dumb. If there's a way to make something work better I'm sure they would've applied it if it was economically viable.

Sorry.

Just venting.

Too bad we did not find an electric/electronic engineer. If not we can dismantle and let him see and he could explain the circuit to us.
