Pity the seller didn't seem very enthusiastic with me testing the product. I kept having to followup with him so I didn't bother to followup.

So there goes the test for now.

DOn't know if it's the same seller or not. Wasn't Peterlm for sure since the guys name was William. LOL
If not wrong the seller is name William the one that came to Vr2 house to install :hmmmm:

That's a real shame. This is one big disadvantage of Fire Storm. The manufacturer and details are unknown. Maybe we should dismantle one and duplicate it and sell at a much more cheaper price. :biggrin:

Or just share to all ZTH members to duplicate it themselves.

If i would to cut it open, I want to know how it actually works rather than duplicate it. Want to find out that the thing REALLY does not increase current that can actually fry our coils. Sometimes, things just use the same principles (i.e increase current) but claim that they have some special technology to do it.

Good idea. Any guinea pigs want to sacrifice theirs? Better make it the Super model since it gives more power than the Normal model. Hahaha.

Seller could be distributor only, so no funds for testing. Should come from manufacturer and if they are confident, they would loan a set for testing.

i still very sceptical about this product. beside some weird prob; below is my finding (CVT gearbox)
without FS: 3k rpm / 120kmj
with FS: 3.3k rpm / 120kmj.

both tested on the same route, same driving pattern, etc. i thought suppose i need not to rev more with FS?

there are some weird issue too with FS installed. i still monitoring it.

anyone with FS installed and check their sparkplug condition after 1-2 week using it?

i drive without FS, all operate normally, satisfied with it, but with FS installed, how the engine behaving make me feel uneasy to drive with it. (ECU not adapt yet?)

Perhaps you elaborate more on how the engine is misbehaving. I do not have this rpm per kmh issue as i'm driving a manual. I did take out my spark plug to inspect after the test. All running normal, but I'm using iridium plugs.

It would be great if you could list down the weird issues that you face after installing FS.

Here is how it works.

Search in Youtube for FUNKENINDUKTOR.

Remember that you got this information from me first, where no other dealers even know of this information. Those other dealers dont even know the underlying theory of the FireStorm. By the way, ask any of the dealers if they have the demo kit. You can see my stocks and the demo kit in the attached photo.

Surely those big dealers and distributors should have huge ready stocks and the demo kit? If you want to know whether those dealers are fly-by-night or unauthorized dealers, just ask them if they have the demo test jig.

Cheers.

Peter

PS. Those FireStorm units in the photo are all the Super model, not the cheaper Normal model.

The first row is Super, but the second row is normal arent they?

Maybe you should consider loaning a unit to Izso to test it out?

Just to answer the questions that has been on everyone's mind in ZTH, the inventor of the FireStorm knows what his FireStorm is capable of and he had already R&D the FireStorm for 2.5 years before releasing into the local market for another 1.5 years before I started promoting the FireStorm for another 2 years now.

You will be surprised at the total number of units of FireStorm sold in this past 2 years since I started promoting it but unfortunately I cannot divulge the exact numbers which run in the thousands. This is why the inventor is not interested to have an independent testing of his product.

Cheers.

Interesting. A spark inductor improvised into a small tube now called "Firestorm ignition".

This is a very old concept that's modernized by this Firestorm inventor. Not exactly his creation but I guess his design is his own.

I suspect you'll find more than just a few capacitors in the packaging if we break it open. But there's very little space for anything else. And since it seems to be connected via the fuse box? (I could be mistaken) the idea is just to fiddle with the ignition frequency?

Izso, yes the FS is installed onto the ignition fuse and it is polarity sensitive. I know the seller he's from LYN his nick V12K, ring any bells to you? Is he who you approach? maybe I can PM him regarding the test since I have TT with him a few times.

You are wrong bro.

We are not and cannot stop anyone from cutting open the FireStorm. You are most welcomed to do it if you can find a donor willing to sacrifice the money they paid for it.

I already advised you guys to cut the Super model as it gives faster acceleration power compared to the Normal model. You can all then make a copy of the Super FireStorm yourself.

If I or the inventor are worried then we would surely discourage you from doing so. Not many in ZTH have bought the FireStorm and have not experienced what it can do but there are a lot of speculations. This is almost the same scenario as in the Chinese Cari Forum where a bunch of idiots there just made a huge hullabaloo over the FireStorm and claimed they uncovered what was inside the unit but they actually could not share the photo of what was inside when other members asked for the photos.

My customers in Lowyat have posted their testimonials of the positive effects of the FireStorm in their engine and that itself is worth much much more than what I could do or say by myself.

Thanks for your interest.

Cheers.

let cut open.... reveal the secret ... i know it some capacitor...
Would you be willing to make a bet that the FireStorm is just another ignition stabilizer utilizing capacitors to boost its voltage?

I'm game if you are. Name your price bro.

Cheers.

Smart, but not totally.

Would you put a wager on it that it utilizes capacitors to boost its voltage, current or frequency? This wager is open to anyone in ZTH. Hehe.

Actually, I've been doing quite a bit of googling on this product (google does not equal to research) and from what I can make out, it basically is a voltage regulator or inducer that messes with the frequency of the electricity so the spark is more refined or is more violent so it is able to 'reach out' further (if you have aggressively side gapped plugs this is useful). I'm not certain how it benefits the combustion process though. I'd need to get my paws on one for testing.

Cvkit - loan me yours laaaaaaaa

Peterlm - no need to get all defensive with me. I'm not pro nor against your product, I'm more interested to know how it ticks. And like I said - I'm sure we'll find a little more than just a few caps so no need to wager. I'm not keen on starting an argument with you.

How much does this product retail for?

No problem geh...but gotta cut ur wires wor...unless u test it on another car.

Actually I really dislike that FS has no company name or contacts or whatsoever. Even if they give lifetime warranty, lets say the one who sells to me strike toto and migrate to Hawaii, who do I go to? Will other distributors take up my calls for the warranty?

cvkit, FS need to cut wires? I have seeing the FS unit up close and it's only plug into the ignition fuse. No need to cut wire. Just need to get the fuse on the FS polarity right if fitted wrongly your car will not start...

I'm not an electrical engineer nor do I claim to be one. But I do know this is a spark inductor and spark inductors ultimately utilize caps in the PWM circuit and power convertor. So to say it doesn't utilize capacitors wouldn't be quite accurate and at the same time saying it does wouldn't be exactly the truth either.

Gotta cut some wires to tap in for Izso's car...most other cars no need.

There is already something similar...power storm. Actually from the testing kit I saw in the video..kinda like peterlm's one keke

Oh another thing - Power storm is not the same as firestorm. If you look at the way the spark reacts Firestorm goes crazy and the spark goes everywhere. The Power storm thingy just extends the reach of the spark. I'm guessing it's just different frequencies.

I now officially declare that I want that test rig. LOL!

It is similar but is the 1st version of the older model. Price is higher bit power is lesser.

I will support you in such case if you had purchased it from my dealer.

If you purchased from other dealers, I can also support you but you have to pay for shipping both ways plus a minimal service charge.

Haha. No worries bro.

Many are interested to find out how it ticks and want to make a clone of it but they have not been successful. I have shared the theory with you all and although the FireStorm seem to work somewhat in the manner explained in the video yet it is not similar to the device in the video.

Cheers.

I'm not sure who is your dealer..but I shall contact all the dealers so happens that my FS goes kapult and if the one who sold me does not distribute FS anymore.

Well if u ask me, everything is possible to be cloned. The purpose of me creating this thread is to share my experience and knowledge which in turn I wish to earn from others too. Good or bad, worthy or not, how it works, etc, that's the purpose of this thread. Izso had tested and reviewed many products some of which is more reputable and famous than firestorm. That is why no matter how good or bad a product is, we want to test it just because we want to test it. We earn nothing from it but knowledge and experience. Should the test result comes out good, the sellers are the one who benefits. So to say that firestorm has earned it's name in the market so the creator does not bother with any independent testing, it is a loss for him coz he surely does not know the concept of leveraging. A very confident and far sighted businessman would invest into something in order to get back twice or thrice or more from the cost of investment. Unless the product is busted, which is also possible (you see surbo was selling like hot cakes in some markets but it is a busted product). Of course, he reserve the very rights to his own action and we all respect it.

If the person who contacted Izso (William?) is committed into lending a unit for the test, then he should reply to Izso's query. If he has changed his mind not to do it, then he shall inform Izso and not by going MIA. That is one seller that I would first avoid. This paragraph is my own opinion only and it is a general statement and example. Anyone who choose to agree or disagree, I don't give a fart ya. Although I fart a lot.

In ZTH, we are different from LYN or Cari or mari or lari forum. That is why firestorm was difficult to market in here. Please do not ask me how is it different from other forums...that, my friend, you gotta discover it yourself.

Firstly, I am not the one to say to cut it open. I just mentioned to loan a set to bro. Izso for test. And usually if manufacturers are confident of their product, they are never afraid on any test since they have done their research.

Yup. Many will not want to clean up the sh*t of others but since I was and am still actively promoting the FireStorm right from the beginning where no one had even heard of the FireStorm, I will help anyone whose dealer have gone MIA or just refuse to service his customer.

I agree its the inventor's own loss or gain if he is not interested to cooperate to have any in-depth practical independent testing of his product. And when Surbo was introduced to me by a Penang dealer back in the early 90's I already found it was a fake product simply because of the way the product worked and the method to activate its supposed performance gain.

I too, test affordable performance products and end up marketing those products if they are found to be beneficial as what is claimed by the inventor. I make the product available with information on its pros and cons. In this way, many will benefit from a truly working product.

If Izso had contacted me first to propose his idea of an independent unbiased test then I may have loaned him a unit for his testing. But he approached the wrong guy who unfortunately "Fong Fei Kei". Hahaha.

ZTH Forummers are more upmarket kakis. Have more money to spend but also want the corresponding value of what they pay for. But more importantly I believe ZTH kakis are willing to spend big money for bigger gains. Voltage Stabilizers are useless products and would not gain any market foothold in ZTH.

Having said that, are there any Forummers here who can claim the VS they are using gives acceleration power to their engine? I would like to debunk the myth of all those useless Voltage Stabilizers and educate the public not to be conned into buying a useless product.

Cheers.

I agree its the inventor's own loss or gain if he is not interested to cooperate to have any in-depth practical independent testing of his product. And when Surbo was introduced to me by a Penang dealer back in the early 90's I already found it was a fake product simply because of the way the product worked and the method to activate its supposed performance gain.

I too, test affordable performance products and end up marketing those products if they are found to be beneficial as what is claimed by the inventor. I make the product available with information on its pros and cons. In this way, many will benefit from a truly working product.

If Izso had contacted me first to propose his idea of an independent unbiased test then I may have loaned him a unit for his testing. But he approached the wrong guy who unfortunately "Fong Fei Kei". Hahaha.
ha! ha! then in the first place should not volunteer....anyway, I think it was him to approach bro. Izso, as we do not know any seller of firestorm. Of course, now we know you....:biggrin:

Ah! you can still loan bro. Izso a set for testing....:smokin::driver:

Aiyah. You guys have not searchrd the ZTH forum for this product lah.

I posted a thread on 28 November 2011 under post ID 394145. Many have replied and PM me on the FireStorm and have bought from me. Its not as lively here as in Lowyat though.

Cheers.

I fart a lot.
Damn. You wrote quite a lot and this was all that I absorbed :biggrin:

Oh don't get me wrong. I never approached anyone. Out of the blue someone SMS-ed me saying that they wanted to loan me a unit for testing but I had to specify him as the seller in my review. I replied and he said he was outstation and not back until Thurs (last week 5th). I tried to setup a meet half way on fri but due to personal constraints I wasn't able to meet him. Tried to setup a meet on Sunday, he agreed but no news after that. Basically the way I saw it was I was the one 'eager' to test, not him 'eager' to let me test. I don't push people to let me try things and if they do, good for them if the review is good. Too bad if the review is not. That's just the risk they have to take.

Ultimately, you've made it quite clear you're not interested in letting me review the product so I'm not bothered to ask you. Like I said - the effort has to come from the seller/manufacturer like in the case of Vsafe who went all out to get my attention. From what I heard, they've made close to RM3k sales in less than a week purely from ZTH alone. I won't say it's thanks to my review but I'm sure I just opened the possibilities for them.


Anyway guys (vr2turbo, cvkit and all) - if FS manufacturer or Peter is not keen on the test, don't keep pressuring them/him. It's not going to go anywhere if either one is forced to do something unwillingly and quite frankly if I do a test I want full support from the seller or manufacturer so I can ask my questions without any reservations. So let's just leave it at that for now.

CVKit - but if you're still up for it I wanna test your unit. Heh.

I wonder if I can self build that test rig. Looks easy enough. :biggrin:

Ah. Now I know the whole story. Thanks for the explanation Izso.

Since that guy approached you then backed out a few times which is a bad thing to do as he had shown how irresponsible he is and this will cause him his credibility and future sales. Will anyone dare to buy from him again? I have had some customer's russle with him a few times but just left him be.

I am not worried about the outcome of your test, be it positive or negative as the test setup will be based on your own environment and your own expectations. I take this as a challenge to show that I am who I say I am so I will send you a Super model of the FireStorm to test until the end of this month, 30 September 2013. Just send it back to me the following day after the expiry of this loan period.

How does that sound? Hahaha.

Cheers.

Kajang to Seremban not far la.....I even went all the way to Kepong, Publika, Shah Alam, Malacca few times for TT also have....it's not the journey that matters is the people that you can meet at TT and the new friendship you can make....that's is worth it.

I also forgot about the test also because was indulge with sharing info and chatting with the attendees.

Hahaha...not hardcore...I just enjoy the get together moment and the people I meet as my job also involved flying around the world to meet different people so just driving to my neighboring states is nothing.

BTW, back to the topic. I only had the chance to test the FS for a short while I did feel the improvement but it was not documented so Izso's test will be a very good base to make this product see more light and gain more grounds. Honestly speaking, I've been modding cars for so long and I only got to know about this FS this year....

Wow interesting job.

There are some gains on paper and in the butt dyno but the ultimate question is if the individual happy with the gains that he sees and feels? Everyone has their own expectations. So Izso's testing may not be a positive point for his own preference but others are more than happy with the gains.

That is why we have not given individual unofficial testing of the FireStorm

Cheers.

peter, I believe Izso's testing is fair and independent. Not because he's a Moderator here then I support him blindly. If the products work it works. It's simple. Result shows gain then definitely there's gain.

Izso's main point is to test if the products work or do not work as claimed so personal expectation will needed to be put aside when it comes to product testing that why Izso has used Dyno tools to aid his testing on his previous product testing. I strongly believe Izso's test will be fruitful and will definitely aid FS's claim to a higher level.

Izso's previous product testing.

Izso - my unit is on standby for your test anytime.

Actually I wasnt pushing any dealer or distributor to lend a unit for Izso to test. I actually hoped that the inventor or the manufacturer would commit to this then it will be a direct deal between the maker and Izso. That would be more "general" so there's fair and square to all dealers. Well anyway, if there is nobody who would lend, Izso can still get mine. And now that Peter agreed to put a Super unit for a test, that is even better. Kudos to that. But I doubt that he can complete the test within this short period of time.....

About 2 weeks of testing time. I dont know how long he would take to test. In any case for his SVDO Wira, the FireStorm will be installed in the engine bay fusebox. It is a plug and play installation but the FireStorm will have to sit outside the fusebox which means that the unit can no longer be sold after it is returned to me. I can use it in my other spare car though.

Cheers bro.

Hmm..that you gotta get a method statement from him. Coz I guess that he's gonna test the power (butt /dyno) and its fuel saving ability. So lets say he finishes 1 tank of petrol per week. So that's only 2 tanks of petrols...I took to the extend of testing with 3 tanks of petrol with and without FS and then take the average coz 2 numbers dont really make a "group", more like just partners to me kakaka.

Or maybe you can provide him a second hand unit? The one you are using? Im just sayin'

Thanks Peter but I'm a bit hesitant to try since this unit will no longer be sell-able after I install it. Would wrapping it up in plastic and foam preserve the unit? Also I need more than 1 month to test the thing. My test will need to include before and after dyno comparisons and I try to go on days that have similar weather so I don't get too much differences in dyno readings due to atmospheric differences. Also, I take an average over 3-4 full tanks and one tank takes about 2 weeks to complete for me. So I'll need at least 3 months to finish a proper test.

Perhaps you could PM me the price of this device then I can consider whether or not to purchase it then do my own testing. Obviously if the price is too high (I'm a DIY-er. Scrooge is my middle name) then I won't be able to agree to purchasing the unit.

Wah.. I am flattered you think that highly of me! But you're right. It wouldn't be a proper independent test if I only relied on butt dyno and a proper dyno is the only tool these days to show a proper gain or loss a product can give. The dyno machine itself may not show accurately how much power my car has, but if there's a gain or a loss it'll definitely show regardless of how puny WHP my car produces.
