I've seen these, but I think IMHO they are overpriced and not needed. I use Bosch double plats in my wife's '04 na PT and the car runs great. I just replaced them with the same plugs after 65k though I didn't need to as the car was still running great. All four plugs were less than $20. I use the factory Copper Plus plugs in my '03 PT GT and my '05 Neon SRT-4. Both cars are modified and fast as hell. Four of these plugs cost me just under $6.

Why would I pay $25 a piece when plugs costing much less does the same thing??

Testing in the EPA’s FTP 75 test resulted in a 2.7% increase in fuel efficiency. Internal tests conducted by Enerpulse demonstrated a nearly 9% improvement in fuel efficiency. This test also showed a 7% improvement in torque and a 10.5% improvement in horsepower output over regular spark plugs.

This rings warning bells for me as to it's superiority. The tests conducted by the company show a 9% increase & the EPA test only showed a 2.7% increase.
Granted there was some increase, but looks like it all goes back to marketing hype IMO. I'm not about to pay $100 for plugs on my car to gain 2.7% efficency. I can do that by spending the $100 on a new set of wires & plugs, plus buy a K&N filter to drop in & have enough left over to by an inflator to keep in the car so i can keep the tires inflated properly for better fuel efficency.
