Re: Troble shooting cdi and spark plug wire
The idea behind the cutting of the ground electrode is to uncover the center electrode so the flame kernel will propagate quicker and start the burning of the fuel quicker and better for increased performance same thing as the snake oil spark plugs you pay out the rear for. Split fire to name one that comes to mind. I attended a school last year on industrial engines and ignitions in general and the latest wave and hottest item coming out is a spark plug that fires a sonic shock wave that fires the fuel off in the cylinder I viewed a very high speed film of this and looks like we will be seeing this in the near future looks like a cannon going off really looked neat. the thing promotes a cleaner burn and more power so there is a performance gain as these people use dyno's and all kinds of wild equipment to evaluate the thing.
